GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The UN's Palestine refugee agency UNWRA on Thursday said that Israeli forces shelled a school serving as a shelter for 1,500 displaced Palestinians for the third time during the ongoing Israeli military assault on the Gaza Strip.

UNRWA said in a statement that at 7:45 a.m. on Wednesday Israeli fire hit Deir al-Balah Girls School in the central Gaza Strip.

The statement said that at the time of the strike the school was sheltering about 1,500 displaced Palestinians. Five people sustained injuries in the attack.

On Tuesday, al-Maghazi Girls School which also shelters displaced Palestinians in central Gaza came under Israeli fire as a team was inspecting damage from a day earlier, a UN official said.

A UN official said a team, which was at the site with Israeli clearance, was at the school in al-Maghazi when Israeli tank shelling resumed.
