4-year-old Daniel Tregerman was killed while running for shelter

Parents Gila and Doron only had time to get their two youngest children inside shelter before a mortar fired from UNRWA facility in Gaza killed Daniel.

Not for the first time, the Mortar was fired from near an UNRWA school in Gaza by Hamas people.

Just earlier, Hamas’s leader Khaled Mashaal said : “We do not target civilians, and we try most of the time to aim at military targets and Israeli bases. We promise that if we get more precise weapons, we will only target military targets”. 

That is, of course, a lie. The boy was killed in his home inside a civilian settlement. Unlike a rocket launched to greater distances, mortars are a close-range weapon that is a lot more accurate.

Let’s wait and see if any Pro-Palestinian (or other) groups will be marching the streets of London or Paris calling Hamas a child-murderer, as they did against Israel just 3 weeks ago.


The crisis in Syria poses new challenges for delivery of UNRWA education. To get over the obstacles, UNRWA has innovated its Education in Emergencies programme.
Across the region, 305 UNRWA schools are teaching over 57,000 Palestine refugees from Syria.
For children in hard to reach areas and/or fleeing the conflict, it has developed self-learning study sheets and computer based materials to focus on key concepts and skills.
UNRWA TV also serves as a further learning resource to students dispersed across the region.
This Education in Emergencies animation video is a tool used with parents to return their children to school.

Palestine refugee students in UNRWA school in Syria participate in a virtual exchange #myvoicemyschool. They discussed the importance of education in their lives with their peers in the UK & Brussels. The students worked together to produce press releases focusing on what the international community can do to help provide young people in Syria with education. They highlighted poverty as a significant cause of school dropout rates. In 2016, UNRWA needs US$ 414 million to meet the minimum humanitarian needs of Palestine refugees affected by the conflict in the region.
