UNRWA School Shelters Rockets (Again!) and Residents in Gaza

UN agency refuses to disclose how many missiles were found in its school, nor where they sent them.

The United Nations is meddling again in Gaza, ‘helping the cause’ of the downtrodden Palestinian Arabs. Stashing their ammo, that is. And helping them hide it when international inspectors find out.

Wow, this all sounds so familiar, right?  This latest statement was posted Tuesday, July 22 on the website of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).

More missiles were found in one of the agency’s schools in Gaza – surprise! – but this time the agency’s spokesperson was smarter and gave even fewer details about the incident. It is impossible, due to international regulations, to prevent the inspections mandated by the agency’s funding. But one can at least gloss over the findings when issuing a statement about what is found and how it is dealt with. Damage control in war time.

“Today, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip. As soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of rockets. The school is situated between two other UNRWA schools that currently each accommodate 1,500 internally displaced persons.”

Were there so many missiles it was impossible to count them? Whoa. And how does the school’s location between two refuge spots relate to this issue? There are launchers planted in nearly every home.

“UNRWA strongly and unequivocally condemns the group or groups responsible for this flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law,” the statement continues.

“The Agency immediately informed the relevant parties,” — the local ruling Hamas terrorist government, that is — “and is pursuing all possible measures for the removal of the objects in order to preserve the safety and security of the school. UNRWA will launch a comprehensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding this incident.

“UNRWA has reinforced and continues to implement its robust procedures to maintain the neutrality of all its premises, including a strict no-weapons policy and regular inspections of its installations, to ensre they are only used for humanitarian purposes.

“Palestinian civilians in Gaza rely on UNRWA to provide humanitarian assistance and shelter. At all times, and especially during escalations of violence, the sanctity and integrity of UN installations must be respected.”

This is the second time such an incident has occurred, and this time UNRWA did not even bother to publicize the number of missiles it found – which obviously it is well aware of.

The last time, it turned the ordnance right over to the Hamas terrorists who placed the missiles there in the first place – a double war crime, sheltering lethal ammunition in a so-called international neutral zone for children, and then handing that dangerous material over to the terrorists firing the ammunition at civilians, who have been proved to be launching the missiles from civilian sites in the neighborhood.

Thus the agency is guilty of being an accessory to a terrorist organization’s attack on Israel, hardly a ‘robust procedure to maintain neutrality.’ It’s certainly not legal.

But since UNRWA is a United Nations agency, however, to whom can Israel appeal the issue?

A sad international joke that increasingly brings into focus the array of enemies around us.

  7. Again they did not post the photo with the picture, another attempt at stopping the Democrats from being exposed, and political and religious harassment that has been ongoing on my account. They hate the truth about leftists Democrats racist antisemitism exposed, but like the story below shows, John Kerry’s mic was on and he let the cat out of the bag that he is slamming Israel yet again. It is all the Democrats not just him.
