BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli army spokeswoman responded to inquiries into Wednesday's school shelling incident by saying that initial reports suggested that Palestinian militants had fired mortar shells at Israeli soldiers from the vicinity of the school in Jabaliya camp.

Israeli forces responded by firing back at the "origins of fire," the spokeswoman told Ma'an.

"The incident is still being reviewed," she added.

At least 16 Palestinians who were taking shelter in the UNRWA school were killed in the Israeli shelling, according to the Ministry of Health.
