WASHINGTON - The White House on Wednesday condemned the shelling of a United Nations school in Gaza that local authorities estimated killed at least 15 Palestinians who were sheltering there.

"We are extremely concerned that thousands of internally displaced Palestinians who have been called on by the Israeli military to evacuate their homes are not safe in UN designated shelters in Gaza," White House National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said. "We also condemn those responsible for hiding weapons in United Nations facilities in Gaza."
