Israeli aircraft have struck a major university in the Gaza Strip as troops continued their military campaign on the Palestinian enclave for a 27th day.A large part of the Islamic University in Gaza City was damaged by Saturday morning’s air strike. Glass of broken windows and notebooks belonging to some of the thousands of students who attended this university were scattered on the ground. No casualties were reported in the bombardment.“This underscores how unpredictable and volatility of the situation in Gaza,” Al Jazeera’s Imtiaz Tyab, reporting from in front of the scene, just two hours after the bombardment, said.
Zulhilmi Zainal: “It is not HAMAS that the Israeli forces are truly trying to target. What they’re truly after is the HOPE of the Gazan people to live. It’s psychological warfare in the most brazen of forms. It’s a systematic ouster of the Gazans from their homeland and demolishing their infrastructure for Israeli occupation all in due time. And all these will only cease when all of Gaza is wiped out into the Mediterranean sea and the world applauds at the Machiavellian spectacle.“
At least 17 killed and 200 injured in Shujayea, an area Israel said was not included in four-hour humanitarian window.
At least 17 Palestinians have been killed and 200 wounded in the bombardment of an area of Shujayea during a “humanitarian pause” unilaterally announced by Israel.
The attack came on the outskirts of the Shujayea, between Gaza City and the Israeli border, shortly after the Israeli army said it was observing a limited, four-hour Wednesday ceasefire from midday GMT, or 3pm local time.
