ITV News witnesses aftermath of UN school attack in Gaza

The Beit Hanoun elementary school, which was being used as a shelter, had around 800 people - mostly women and children - inside when the attack took place at 2.30pm today.

UN spokesman Adnan Abu Hassna told ITV News that the Israeli military attacked the school, despite having received the exact co-ordinates of the facility.

But Israel neither admitted or denied responsibility for the attack.

Dan Rivers reported seeing dozens of children lying in “pools of blood” in a local hospital.
