"In a related development, UNRWA said that a cache of rockets was found today at one of its schools in central Gaza. The discovery came during a regular UNRWA inspection of the school, which was closed for the summer and not being used as a shelter. All the relevant parties have been notified.
“We condemn the group or groups who endangered civilians by placing these munitions in our school,” said UNRWA spokesperson Chris Gunness. “This is yet another flagrant violation of the neutrality of our premises. We call on all the warring parties to respect the inviolability of UN property.”
Ebola, è allarme nel Regno Unito - Cameron convoca meeting urgente - Msf: “Epidemia ormai fuori controllo” - Il ministro britannico Hammond : «Il virus una minaccia per il nostro Paese».

Gli attacchi aerei hanno investito a Jabalya anche una scuola dell’Onu, causando secondo fonti palestinesi almeno 15 vittime. Il portavoce dell’Onu Chris Gunness ammette: “Trovati razzi in una terza scuola dell’Onu, è inaccettabile, abbiamo mandato un esperto per disattivare le armi che non saranno consegnate alle autorità locali”.
Fears that the west African Ebola outbreak could spread to Europe grew on Wednesday, with the EU allocating extra spending and a leading medical charity warning the epidemic was out of control.
Doctors Without Borders (MSF) warned the crisis gripping Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone would only get worse and could not rule out it spreading to other countries.
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has met global health officials on implementing measures to halt the spread of the disease, as the pan-African airline ASKY suspended all flights to and from the capitals of Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Meanwhile the European Union allocated an extra two million euros ($2.7 million) to fight the outbreak, bringing total EU funding to 3.9 million euros.
"The level of contamination on the ground is extremely worrying and we need to scale up our action before many more lives are lost," said EU Humanitarian Aid Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva.
