Bombing damages Gaza’s Catholic parish school
July 30, 2014
An Israeli army bombing has damaged the school of Gaza’s only Catholic parish, as well as the office of Gaza’s parish priest.
The target of the bombing was a nearby home, the Fides news agency reported.
“Everything happens around us,” said Father Jorge Hernandez, the parish priest. “The Hamas militants continue to fire rockets and then hide in the alleys. And we cannot do anything.”
“We cannot evacuate, it is impossible with children,” he added. “It is more dangerous to go out than stay here. We try to stay in safer places, always on the ground floor.”
