Of course: White House blames Israel for UNRWA school deaths
The White House - after no investigation whatsoever
- is blaming Israel for the deaths of human shields in an UNRWA school in Gaza that was storing rockets.
The United States said Thursday there was little doubt Israeli
artillery was the source of a "totally indefensible" strike that killed
16 people at a UN school in Gaza.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest noted that UN Secretary-General
Ban Ki-moon had said all available evidence pointed to Israeli artillery
and that the Israeli government had acknowledged its forces were firing
in the area in response to Hamas fire near the school.
“So while we underscore the importance of a full and prompt
investigation of this tragic incident, as well as a shelling of other UN
facilities and schools that have been hit, it does not appear there's a
lot of doubt about whose artillery was involved in this incident," he
"That is why we have continued to urge Israeli military officials to
live up to their high standards that they have set for the protection of
innocent civilians. There is clearly more that can and should be done
to ensure the safety of innocent civilians."
