In response to media queries on the shelling of the Jabalia Elementary Girls School in Gaza, the MFA spokesman said:      

    “We condemn the shelling of the Jabalia Elementary Girls School in Gaza, a designated United Nations (UN) shelter for displaced Palestinians, which has injured and killed innocent lives, including children. Such actions are unpardonable. UN humanitarian operations, personnel and premises must remain inviolable. This incident and the rising number of civilian deaths further strengthen the urgent need for an immediate cessation of all hostilities so that humanitarian aid can be provided to all those affected by the conflict. ”
