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.
On the 25th of January in London and on the 27the of January in Brussels, the #MyVoiceMySchool project will connect European students with Palestine refugee students in Syria to discuss the importance of education in their lives.
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.
