KHAN YOUNIS, (PIC)– The education ministry in the southern Gaza Strip province of Khan Younis evacuated on Monday five schools in light of the escalating Israeli raids on the area.

The ministry said in a press release that a big number of Israeli shells fell in the vicinity of those schools in the early morning hours prompting it to order their evacuation fearing for the lives of the schoolchildren.

The director of the ministry’s office east of Khan Younis Fathi Klub said that the evacuation fell in line with the ministry’s policy of evacuating schools at times of Israeli aggression.

The ministry had earlier made exercises on evacuation of schools at times of war in preparation for any such possibility on the part of the Israeli occupation.
