Description

A top American senator has defended Israel’s bloody attacks targeting Palestinian schools and hospitals in the besieged Gaza Strip. Elizabeth Warren says Tel Aviv has the right to shell hospitals and schools in order to "defend itself". The senator also called on the US administration to allot more military funding to Israel. During the 50-day war on Gaza, Israeli warplanes targeted a number of schools and hospitals, in defiance of the Geneva conventions which ban such attacks. More than 2100 Palestinians, over 500 of them children, lost their lives during the Israeli offensive. According to the UN Children’s Fund, some 373,000 Palestinian children are in need of immediate psycho-social first aid due to the onslaught.
