Ban Ki-moon has said that the destruction of UN-run buildings and schools in Gaza during Israel’s 22-day war on Hamas is totally unacceptable.
The United Nations secretary general expressed his anger at seeing the devastation during his tour of Gaza on Tuesday, saying that those who opened fire on the building should be held accountable.
The UN chief was speaking to reporters outside the still-smoldering main UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) compound in Gaza City, which was hit by Israeli shells last Thursday, setting fire to the building and to the food aid stored inside.
Other UN buildings were also hit during the fighting, and a number of Palestinian refugees allowed by the UN to take shelter inside its schools were killed. Ban said, “It is an outrageous and totally unacceptable attack on the United Nations.”
There must be a full investigation, a full explanation “to make sure it never happens again. There should be accountability through a proper judiciary system,” Times Online quoted him as saying.
