Students in the Gaza Strip held protests this week to urge a speedier repair and rebuilding of the dozens of schools that were destroyed by Israel’s military this past summer during its assault on the civilian population.

More than 2,200 people were killed with more than 90 percent civilians, including about 500 children, babies and infants. International Civil Rights and Human Rights organizations unanimously condemned Israel’s assault accusing the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of war crimes.

The students complained that progress is extremely slow in replacing the schools despite funds donated or pledged by dozens of international nations through the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).

The protest was held in front of UNRWA’s building in the Gaza Strip.
