UN headquarters in Gaza hit by Israeli 'white phosphorus' shells

I am a bit incredulous at this. To be fair, the Israeli's claim they were responding to being fired upon from the UN position... however, bombing, with white phosphorous, in a civilian area a UN depot for needed supplies, food, and medicine is shockingly contemptuous of international law, the UN, and the human beings who live in Gaza.

Also this is not the first incident where Israel has attacked a UN facility.
