American International School in Gaza Strip destroyed in Israeli air strike

Israeli warplanes leveled an American-style private school on Saturday morning that employees say had no connection to the Hamas rulers of the Gaza Strip or to armed activity in the Strip.

The American International School in Gaza (AISG) in Beit Lahiya was founded by Americans in 2001.

An elite private institution, AISG stressed teaching English as a second language and instilling progressive, enlightened values in its students using an American curriculum.

Now, more than 200 students and dozens of faculty and staff will have nowhere to go when Israel ends its aggression on the Gaza Strip.

"I have no idea what will happen to us," said Rawan Al-Masri a first grade teacher at the K-12 school. "Where will the students study? Now there is nothing."
