UNRWA spokesmen Chris Gunness broke down in tears during an interview Wednesday evening on Al-Jazeera TV after detailing the humanitarian impact of the Israeli shelling on Gaza.Sixteen people were killed in the brutal shelling, which received widespread condemnation, including from the U.N. refugee agency's Commissioner General Pierre Krahenbuhl, who said that the school's location had been communicated to the Israeli army 17 times.Gunness has been in the public spotlight since the latest Israeli assault on Gaza began 24 days ago, publicizing the difficulties that the agency faces trying to shelter more than 200,000 Palestinians in its schools and facilities across the tiny coastal enclave.
