Moblog Journals Israel War Crime at Gaza UN School 17 January
Direct first-hand investigative visits to the UN school in Gaza by UN officials including its Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon as well as human rights watch workers have given clear evidence of the immediate need to investigate and prosecute Israel for war crimes - terrorizing, murdering, burning, blinding and maiming Gazan school children, staff and families with Israel's atrocious decision to mobilize and use a well-known and torturous banned weapon, white phosphorus, in highly populated urban war zones, not to mention its deployment against little school children.

Mobile phone footage from Gaza shows the moment on 17 January when a UN school in Beit Lahiya was hit by shellfire on the last day of Israel's three-week offensive.
The burning lumps are consistent with the incendiary device white phosphorus (WP) - which is banned from use within areas of civilian concentration under international weapons agreements."
