Show me 1 country that would act differently.
The soldiers who returned fire did not know there were civilians in the building. They were responding to fire being shot at them during a war from a building - they don't have the time to find out if it is a UN building or not and/or if there are civilians inside or not.
Civilians who decide to stay in a war zone after being warned to leave and/or stay next to terrorists firing rockets at Israelis are at risk of being killed.
It is one of the sad facts of war - people die.
If the Palestinian terrorist groups cared so much for their fellows, they would not use them as human shields.
If these civilians were smarter, they would not have elected Hamas, a terrorist organization, for government - and they would not climb to rooftops expecting Israeli fighter jets to not bomb the building as they see civilians, trying to prevent the building from being bombed (and save the weapons stored at the building).
