The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) stated that more than 423 thousand Palestinians were displaced to their schools due to the ongoing Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip.
In a statement, UNRWA said that there are approximately 423 thousand Palestinians displaced in 64 UNRWA shelters, adding that the numbers are likely to increase amid the continued violent Israeli bombardment and air strikes.
A UNRWA school sheltering displaced Palestinian families in the Gaza Strip was directly hit on Sunday. The school, sheltering more than 225 people, was severely damaged. No casualties were recorded among the displaced.
The Ministry of Health in Gaza reported that Israeli airstrikes claimed the lives of almost 1537 Palestinians including at least 91 children and 61 women, with 6612 others injured.
Three students at UNRWA schools in Khan Younis and Beit Hanoun are confirmed to be among the casualties
