U.S.-Made Munitions Used in Deadly Strike on UN School in Gaza, Experts Say | 6 June 2024 | At least 40 people were killed, including 14 children and nine women, in a strike on a UN school in the central Gaza Strip on Thursday, said the Gaza Health Ministry. The munitions used by Israeli fighter jets appear to have been U.S.-made, said three weapons experts who examined and verified footage, a report from The Washington Post claims. The school, which is organized and operated by the UN agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) is located in the Nuseirat refugee camp, where some 6,000 civilians were sheltering after being displaced by the war, said UNRWA. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) claimed their aircraft attacked "three classrooms" with precision weapons while targeting a group of militants they say participated in the October 7 attacks.
