The Palestinian Ministry of Education in Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, evicted Monday dozens of schoolchildren from five schools, east of Khan Younis, due to heavy Israeli bombardments targeting the area.The Ministry issued a press release stating that dozens of Israeli shells landed near the schools since early morning hours, an issue that forced the ministry to send the children home in fear of further Israeli military escalation.
The evicted schools are Khuza’a High School for Boys, Khuza’a Girls School, Abasan Al-Jadeeda Elementary School for Boys and Girls, and Al-Ma’arry Elementary School for boys and girls.
The Ministry of Interior said that the eviction of the schools was successfully conducted due to previous trainings that were conducted by the ministry in different schools due to ongoing Israel assaults against the coastal region.
Also on Monday, a young Palestinian man died of wounds suffered Sunday after the Israeli army bombarded Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip wounding ten Palestinians, three seriously. Children were also among the wounded.
