According to a United Nations official, a team with Israeli clearance was at the school in al-Maghazi when Israeli tank shelling resumed, hitting the building on Tuesday afternoon, Ma'an News Agency stated.

"Yesterday we got reports that it was shelled and so today we sent our guys down to investigate and see which side the fire came from," he said to AFP under request of anonymity:

"They went down there with Israeli clearance, and while they were there, they came under Israeli shelling."

Holes have been blown through the walls of the school and the gates have been blown off, yet no injuries have been reported.

The school has been evacuated and UNRWA has submitted an official letter about the shelling to Israel.
