UNITED NATIONS (AFP) -- A UN inquiry on Monday blamed the Israeli military for seven attacks on UN schools in Gaza that were used as shelters during the recent war.

"I deplore the fact that at least 44 Palestinians were killed as a result of Israeli actions and at least 227 injured at United Nations premises being used as emergency shelters," Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in a letter to the Security Council.
