France expressed its deep concern about information indicating that there had been several Israeli raids targeting several schools housing displaced persons in Gaza, including a school belonging to UNRWA. 

The deputy spokesman for the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs described targeting of schools as unacceptable especially those sheltering civilian populations displaced due to the ongoing conflict in the Gaza Strip. 

According to the French official, France calls on Israel to do everything in its power to protect civilians during military operations and to fully respect international humanitarian law.

Regarding the emergency humanitarian situation in Gaza, France calls for an immediate and permanent ceasefire; Which would allow the protection of civilians, the release of hostages and the delivery of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip.
