Pakistani Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai, while deploring Israel’s attack on another school in Gaza, has once again reiterated called for a ceasefire in the beleaguered territory.

Taking to social media platform X, Malala said: “I’m devastated to see yet another Israeli strike on a school in Gaza. We cannot become numb to violations of international humanitarian law and look away from the loss of innocent lives. I reiterate the urgent call for a lasting ceasefire.”

The Nobel laureate’s comments come after, as per Palestinian officials, around 16 people lost their lives and dozens more were wounded after an Israeli air strike targeted a United Nations-run school in Gaza.

The building was sheltering thousands of displaced people at Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza, according to the health ministry.

There was no letup in fighting inside Gaza, where late on Sunday the Israeli military renewed orders for residents and displaced families in several districts in Gaza City to leave their homes.

The conflict was triggered on October 7 when fighters led by Hamas, which controlled Gaza, attacked southern Israel, killing 1,200 people and taking around 250 hostages, according to Israeli figures.

More than 38,000 Palestinians have been killed in Israel’s military onslaught, according to Gaza health officials, and the coastal enclave has largely been reduced to rubble.

A ceasefire seems far as Israel remains adamant about wiping out Hamas.
