The Israeli military on Thursday, June 6, carried out an airstrike on a UN school in the central part Gaza Strip, which, according to Palestinian health authorities, killed at least 27 people, reports Voice of America.

The Israel Defense Forces reported that Hamas militants who took part in the attack on Israel 7 October, used the school as a hideout and a “direction of terror.”

The Hamas press office rejected Israel's explanation and said Israeli forces had committed a “brutal crime” against displaced persons.

The attack targeted a school in Nuseirat run by the UN agency for Palestinian refugees.
