EAA's International Educational Facility Destroyed in Gaza Bombing

Calendar icon

Today, early morning 10 October 2023, EAA’s Al Fakhoora House in the Southern part of Al Rimal, Gaza, was destroyed in Israel’s ‘Operation Iron Swords’ bombing.

Al Fakhoora House was a safe space for students and families in an area that hosts civil society and international organizations.

In 2009, the UNRWA Al Fakhoora school in Gaza was bombed during Operation Cast Lead while civilian IDPs used it as a shelter. The Al Fakhoora programme was created in 2010 as a direct response to honour the victims of this attack on education.

EAA reiterates that collective punishment, reprisals and attacks on civilians and civilian infrastructure are serious violations of international humanitarian law, and if deliberate, they are war crimes.
