Shocker: UNRWA Finds Rockets in Gaza School……Again


Print Friendly, PDF & Email


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 As soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of rockets.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

  1. It’s probably the same rockets they discovered in the other school. They’ll give them back to Hamas and they will be moved to a different school.
    Truth be told I may be reading a little much into this but this might actually be a good sign. Not because the UNRWA is anything special but because it seems to imply that Hamas is running out of some of the hiding places they were using previously.

  2. These are probably not the same rockets as last time. Those were returned to Hamas, are already in the public knowledge, and do not need to be hidden anymore. We are again seeing a painful reality – the UN agencies are part of Israel’s enemy. We have witnessed this several times before. We have also observed the UN itself becoming a voice of the Arab/Muslim countries and groups, rabidly anti-Israel. This needs to be recognized and understood by the US government.

  3. What’s more required for Hamas to be sent to the international tribunal for war crimes? Or is that one only here to try Israel?
