IDF confirms it hit schools in Gaza

The Israel Defense Forces confirms via Twitter that it hit over 15 targets in overnight airstrikes, including “terror sites” used as command and control centers for Hamas.

Among the targets, the army says, were two schools in the central and northern Strip being used as rocket launching sites.

One of the schools hit, the Ali Bin Abi Taleb school, was also being used as a shelter by internally displaced Palestinians, who were warned via text message and voice message to leave, the IDF says.

It says a mortar shot from the school on Friday struck and killed 4-year-old Daniel Tragerman in Nahal Oz, just outside the Strip, according to the army.
