Israel says jets targeting ‘Hamas compound’ have hit a school in Gaza

Israel says its military planes have struck a school in Gaza while targeting what it says was a “Hamas compound”.
Hamas-affiliated media said the airstrike killed at least 39 people.
There is conflicting information about the strike in the Nuseirat area on Thursday morning.
The Associated Press could not immediately independently confirm the details of what happened.
The Israeli military said its fighter jets struck the school run by the United Nations agency providing aid to the Palestinians, known by the acronym UNRWA.
They said, without immediately offering evidence, that Hamas and the Islamic Jihad used the school as a cover for their operations.
“Before the strike, a number of steps were taken to reduce the risk of harming uninvolved civilians during the strike, including conducting aerial surveillance, and additional intelligence information,” the Israeli military said.
The Nuseirat refugee camp is in the middle of the Gaza Strip. It is a built-up Palestinian refugee camp in central Gaza dating back to the 1948 Arab-Israeli war.
