UN blames Israel for Gaza attacks

More than 1,400 Palestinians were killed in
Israel's month-long assault on Gaza

A United Nations inquiry into the war in Gaza has found that Israel was blame for at least seven direct attacks on UN operations - including schools and medical centres.

The UN report, commissioned by Ban Ki-Moon, the UN secretary-general, said the Israeli military intentionally fired at UN facilities and civilians hiding in them during the war and used disproportionate force.

Missiles, bombs and small arms were all used by Israel against the UN - leading to dozens of deaths.

The UN's own fuel and aid depot in Gaza was hit with Israeli artillery shells causing widespread damage.

The attack continued for two hours after the UN asked the Israeli military for it to stop.
