Weapons Found At UNRWA School. Again


"Ok Chris, I'll put it somewhere else."

“Ok Chris, I’ll put it somewhere else.”

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 As soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of rockets.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.

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

The Agency immediately informed the relevant parties 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 ensure 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.

I wonder if these are the same weapons Hamas removed from the previous school?

    In Aesop’s fable of the Scorpion and the Frog, UNWRA is the Scorpion’s life preserver.

    May they ROT in hell.

    The act has worn thin of UNRWA being shocked, shocked that armaments are stored on their premises. As long as the IDF is in Gaza, they owe it to the people of Israel to put UNRWA out of business.

    There are not schools they are terrorist training bases. We call them schools the Arabs do not. Bomb them all flat with no warning.

    99% of UNRWA’s employees are locally recruited “Palestinian” Arabs. So what can anyone expect?

    If this is news, we really are winning. They didnt have to announce this.

    • cba

      I’ve been very curious about that ever since the first announcement. I wonder what prompted it.

      Was it a new (overseas) employee who didn’t realize it was “OK” and squealed?
      Was it someone getting careless in front of a not-totally-biased reporter who saw them?

      I really hope the story comes out sooner or later, because I’d love to know.

    Jim From Iowa wants more proof that Israel isn’t making up claims that Hamas is operating from civilian areas.
