Gaza City (CNN) — While dueling political leaders blame each other for the carnage in Gaza, residents there are grappling with a new, nightmarish life:

Dozens of deaths reported each day. Dwindling fuel and water supplies. And no electricity for countless civilians after Gaza’s only power plant was struck and erupted in flames.

The violence continued Wednesday morning, when Israeli forces shelled the Abu Hussein School in northern Gaza and killed 20 people, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.

An Israeli military spokesman said an initial review indicates militants fired at Israeli soldiers from the area of the school, and Israeli soldiers “responded by firing at the origin of the fire.”

The school was a U.N. facility based in Gaza’s Jebaliya refugee camp, the U.N. Relief and Works Agency said. Agency spokesman Gaza Adnan Abu Hasna gave a different death toll of 19, but said 126 people were injured.

    19 fewer future Hamas terrorists. Sooner or later, the Palestinians are going to get fed up with Hamas. Hamas is the cause of their problems and the eradication of Hamas is the solution. But seeing as how Hamas is backed by Muslim states that practice the religion of peace, this conflict can on for a long time.
