how not to bring about Mideast peace, part 2

Widespread reports are saying that Israel shelled a UN-run school in Gaza that was being used as a refugee shelter. An UNRWA official is briefing the UN media via videolink from Gaza about the incident at this moment, saying that UNRWA had provided coordinates to the school to the Israeli military in advance, precisely so that it wouldn't be hit.

The war in Lebanon's end was arguably hastened when Israel shelled a UNIFIL outpost and killed four unarmed UN observers. Maybe this will do the same.
