AlJazeera rapporterar att Israel bombat en av deras FN-skolor i Gaza.
Både FN:s personal och ett 30-tal kvinnor & barn har dödats och minst 200 skadats enligt AlJazeeras källor på platsen. Det här måste väl öppna för ett Nobelpris till Israel..?

UN official confirms attack on Gaza civilian shelter

Publicerades den 24 jul 2014 av: Al Jazeera English
Robert Turner, United Nations Relief and Works Agency director for Gaza Operations, says school that serves as an evacuation centre for Palestinian civilians has been hit by Israeli air strikes.

Al Jazeera 2014-07-24.
At least 15 people have been reported killed and 200 injured when shells hit a UN school in northern Gaza which was being used as a shelter from fierce clashes on the streets outside.

- UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon has said he was "appalled" by an attack on a UN-run school in the northern Gaza strip that had killed women, children and UN staff.

"Circumstances are still unclear. I strongly condemn this act," Ban said in a statement. 
"Many have been killed - including women and children, as well as UN staff."
The Gaza health ministry said at least 15 people had been killed and some 200 wounded.
Thursday's strike is the fourth time a UN facility has been hit in the 17 days of Israeli bombardment of Gaza.

At least 730 Palestinians have been killed and more than 4,500 injured in Israeli assault.
Two Israeli civilians have been killed by fire from Gaza since the offensive began.

Women, children and UN staff were among those killed during the shelling of a UN-run school in northern Gaza, in which hundreds of people had taken refuge. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed outrage and horror at the tragedy.

“I am appalled by the news of an attack on an UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) school in Northern Gaza where hundreds of people had taken refuge,” Ban said in a statement published on the UN's website, adding that “circumstances are still unclear.”[...]

  1. ‘Disgustingly Biased’ – The Corporate Media On The Gaza Massacre

    By Media Lens

    Global Research, July 24, 2014

    Soon after Malaysian Airlines MH17 crashed near Donetsk, Ukraine on July 18, killing 298 people, the BBC website quickly, and rightly, set up a ‘LIVE’ feed with rolling reports and commentary on the disaster. This was clearly an important and dramatic event involving horrific loss of life with serious political implications. The public would, of course, be searching for the latest news.
    However, since July 8, ten days prior to the crash, Israeli armed forces had been bombarding the trapped civilian population of Gaza with airstrikes, drone strikes and naval shelling. As the massive Israeli assault ramped up on July 9, the World section of the BBC News website had this as itsheadline:
    ‘Israel under renewed Hamas attack’
    By July 18, around 300 people had been killed in Gaza, 80% of them civilians. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a key political issue of our time, one that was clearly developing by the minute after July 8. And yet at no point had the BBC set up a ‘LIVE’ feed with rolling news.
    That finally changed on July 20 after so many days in which so many Palestinians had been killed. Why July 20? The answer appears to be found in the fourth entry of the live feed under the title ‘Breaking News’:
    ‘Some 13 Israeli soldiers were killed overnight in Gaza, news agencies, quoting Israeli military sources, say. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to address the nation shortly.’
    Despite this small number of military deaths compared to the Palestinian toll, it seems clear that the killing of the Israeli troops triggered the BBC live feed. It focused intensely on these deaths, with entries of this kind:
    ‘Ben White, writer tweets: Israel has lost more soldiers in a 3 day old ground offensive than it did during Cast Lead & Pillar of Defense combined (12).’[...]

  2. --Al-Jazeera Gaza offices evacuated after direct hit by Israeli fire--

    July 22, 2014

    Source: The Guardian
    Lieberman accused the Qatar-based channel of being a mouthpiece for Hamas, and said the foreign ministry was taking steps to prevent it from broadcasting from Gaza, according to Israel's Channel 2 TV.
    Israel's army has denied targeting the Gaza offices of al-Jazeera TV after the network's correspondents reported that the building had come under fire on Tuesday.
    Staff in Gaza said their 11th floor bureau was hit by two Israeli bullets as a crew was preparing to broadcast live from the balcony. "Two very precise shots were fired straight into our building," said Stefanie Dekker. "We are high up in the building so we had a very strong vantage point over the area. But we have evacuated." Al-Jazeera aired footage of their staff standing outside the building.
    A spokesman for the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) said no warning shots had been fired but could not confirm or deny whether there had been indirect damage to the building from firing at nearby military targets, the Jerusalem Post reported.
    The incident came a day after Israel's foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, called for al-Jazeera to be banned.[...]

  3. --Media Coverup: US Played A Decisive “Behind the Scenes Role” in Israel’s Attack on Gaza--

    July 24, 2014 By Jonathan Cook

    Two reporters for major US TV channels were summarily “removed” last week from covering Israel’s attack on Gaza, moments before Israel launched a ground invasion.
    NBC pulled out Ayman Mohyeldin, who has been widely praised for the even-handedness of his reporting from Gaza, just as he landed a harrowing scoop. He had kicked a football with four boys who were killed moments later by an Israeli missile.
    Mohyeldin managed a few tweets before being removed, allegedly on “security” grounds. But why then did NBC immediately send in a replacement? After a public outcry, Mohyeldin was reinstated, but no proper explanation of the decision has been provided.
    Shortly afterwards, CNN “reassigned” its reporter in Israel, Diana Magnay, after a tweet in which she labelled as “scum” an Israeli mob that threatened her with violence as she filmed them celebrating missile explosions in Gaza. The tweet was deleted within minutes, followed by her rapid departure.
    The impression left by these incidents and the generally deferential tone towards Israel in US coverage is that, faced with huge pressure from the Israel lobby, media executives are frantically policing their correspondents’ output, including on social media.
    That view was confirmed to Max Blumenthal by an NBC producer after the channel axed Rula Jebreal, a Palestinian contributor, following her on-air complaints about the massive over-representation of Israeli officials in US coverage. The producer said there was a “witch-hunt” being conducted by NBC executives, led by the media corporation’s president, Phil Griffin.
    The obvious shortcomings in US coverage of a story in which Washington itself is a key player deprive us of a vital piece of the puzzle about what is going on in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
