Terming the Israel attack a “universal shame”, Chris Gunness, spokesman for UNRWA, broke down on live TV while expressing his disappointment over Israeli attacks on Gaza Strip.
Condemning the attack on a UNRWA-run school, Gunness said Israel was told 17 times that the school housed displaced people.
In the video, the UN member is seen chocking while speaking about the attacks and finally breaking down with loud cries.
More than 180,000 people have been displaced from their homes in Gaza, mostly taking shelter in UNRWA run schools, following warning from Israel of attacks in their neighbourhood.
With no end in sight, the so-far longest conflict between Israel and Hamas has resulted in the death of 1360 Palestinians and injuries to more than 6,000.
