UNRWA Discovers 20 Rockets Hidden in Gaza School

Yesterday, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered approximately 20 rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip. UNRWA strongly condemns the group or groups responsible for placing the weapons in one of its installations. This is a flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law. This incident, which is the first of its kind in Gaza, endangered civilians including staff and put at risk UNRWA’s vital mission to assist and protect Palestine refugees in Gaza.

Immediately after discovery, the Agency informed the relevant parties and successfully took all necessary measures for the removal of the objects in order to preserve the safety and security of the school. UNRWA has launched a comprehensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding this incident.

UNRWA has strong, established procedures to maintain the neutrality of all its premises, including a strict no-weapons policy and routine inspections of its installations, to ensure they are only used for humanitarian purposes. UNRWA will uphold and further reinforce its procedures.

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.

  1. unrwa are working for the Arabs against Jews. They are a well known anti-semitic group of Jew-Haters who pretend to be neutral. The are part of the United Nations Organization which is no better. They have condemned Israel more than any other country despite the fact that it is the only true democracy in the middle east. That Hamas rockets were stored in an UNRWA school is no surprise. It is a safe place from Israel attack. HAVE YOU NO SHAME???

  2. There must have been 2,000+ but the UN would never say so! Or, since it was school, they taught a math lesson showing the value of the zero and removed 2 zeros for the story!
