The number of displaced persons in Gaza doubled in one day and more than 25,000 Palestinians moved into UNRWA schools only on July 18, 2014. The number of displaced Palestinians seeking shelter in UNRWA schools in Gaza has now equaled the peak number from the 2008/9 conflict, and exceeds 50,000 in 44 schools. UNRWA is now warning that its funds and supplies are running critically low. (www.unrwa.org/donate)
As death toll climbs to 343 on the 12th day of the Israeli assault on Gaza, “at least 73 Palestinian children have been reported killed as a result of airstrikes and shelling by Israeli aerial, naval and ground forces” UNICEF’s Catherine Weibel told AFP. She said the youngest was reportedly three months old and more than half of the children killed are under the age of 12. (Naming the dead)

"It’s just that it looks a little… anatomical."
"What? Nobody’s going to think that."
