The Turkish Foreign Ministry strongly condemned the Israeli attack on the UN Al-Fakhoura school in northern Gaza Strip.

"We strongly condemn Israel's attack on the Al-Fakhoura school operated by the UN in Gaza on November 18, which resulted in the killing of dozens of innocent Palestinian children," the Ministry said statement on Sunday.

The attack is more "evidence" that Israel "deliberately and ruthlessly targeted the civilian population, especially children, in Gaza," the Ministry added.

The international community should no longer "turn a blind eye to Israel undermining law and all humanitarian values with the grave crimes it has committed. It is imperative to immediately declare an unconditional and lasting ceasefire in Gaza. We call on every conscientious member of the international community to take the necessary steps in this direction," the Ministry stressed.

Dozens of Palestinians were killed and injured Saturday in an Israeli bombardment of the UN-run learning center in Jabalia Camp, northern Gaza Strip. (QNA)
