According to media reports, these UN schools are notorious shileds for terrorists. Reuters claims, that the headmaster was moonlighting as a rocket maker for islamic jihad. Hamas uses human shields, they fired on the IDF, they booby-trapped the school, and its was the second explosion from the booby-trap that killed all those people not the IDF.

Those people are so evil, killing their own people to try and make Israel look bad. Yemach Shemam.

This footage is from the same school that Israel hit to stop the mortar fire. But it still requires clarification whether this exact video was taken yesterday from the actual site before Israel hit it, or whehter this video was taken in 2007, from the same school on another occassion. Tzarich iyun.

This was reported in Haaretz on January 7:

"The IDF on Tuesday released video footage from 2007 showing Palestinian militants firing from the school compound and carrying a rocket launcher with them as they flee the scene."

As the Haaretz report clearly states that the video footage was from 2007 and not from the current conflict, in the interests of truth and decency, isn't it time that you posted a formal correction?

Kim,

As I indicated before your first, comment, I thought this might have been the case. And that's why I appreciated your previous comment, citing the Haaretz report. Thank you for the clarification that I was seeking. All the best.

I still feel a correction should've been made in a formal post, rather than in the comments section, but I appreciate you letting my comment stand.

I recently tried to get a similar correction made about this story on an online version of The Australian Jewish News. Thus far no correction has been made and they've refused to post my comment. So I apologise if I sounded overly indignant.
