Israeli Jets Level University Buildings in Gaza

HeadlineMar 07, 2011

In news from Gaza, Israeli F-16 fighter jets have bombed a number of buildings under construction at the Islamic University in Gaza City. No one was injured in the attack, but schools officials questioned why Israel would bomb an educational facility.

Salah El Aide, building supervisor: “At night, F-16 jets struck the building. We do not know anything besides this, why it was struck, the reason. We have nothing military here. This is a building that belongs to an educational institution that has no relation to anything. We are very surprised that it was struck.”
