The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor said it condemns in the "strongest terms" the Israeli escalation targeting schools across the Gaza Strip, The Middle East Eye reported. 

The group documented air strikes and artillery shelling that took place on Tuesday and Wednesday morning targeting Palestine and Salah al-Din schools in the Jabalia refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip, the Al-Falah school in the Al-Zaytoun neighbourhood South of Gaza City, Maan school in Khan Younis, and another school in Bani Suhaila town in the Southern Gaza Strip. 

It said some of these schools were operated by the UN Agency for Palestinian Refugees, UUNRWA. 

"Israel must fulfil all its obligations in accordance with international humanitarian law, including stopping the targeting of civilians and United Nations facilities," the monitor said in a statement. 

Israel launched relentless air and ground attacks on the Gaza Strip following a cross-border attack by Hamas on October 7.

The Palestinian death toll from Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip has soared to 16,248 people, the government media office in the besieged Palestinian enclave said Tuesday.

“The victims include 7,112 children and 4,885 women, while more than 43,616 others were injured,” the office said in a statement. According to the media office, some 7,600 people remain unaccounted for.
