Goldknopf Evicts UNWRA From Its Jerusalem Offices

Housing Minister Yitzchak Goldknopf announced at the Israel Bar Association conference that the Israel Land Authority (ILA) ordered the UNWRA to immediately vacate its offices and the land it is using in Jerusalem.

The UNWRA has a long history of violating leases that was largely ignored by the ILA in the past. But now that the organization’s ties to terror have been revealed, Goldknopf demanded that the agency be evicted from state land.

In a letter to UNRWA authorized by Goldknopf, the ILA demanded that the agency pay them NIS 27.1 million ($7.3 million) for using Israeli state land without consent for the last seven years.

The agency was ordered to “immediately stop any illegal use, destroy everything you have built in violation of the law, vacate the land of any people or items and return it to the [ILA] within 30 days from the date of this letter.”

The Im Tirtzu organization, which has been leading the battle to evict the UNWRA from Jerusalem, stated: “Just yesterday, we held another demonstration outside the UNWRA offices, and in recent months, we have held dozens of demonstrations and protests in front of the UNWRA offices. We sent thousands of messages to ministers, MKs, and the head of the National Security Council demanding an end to the farce of the presence of the UNWRA terror organization in Jerusalem. We are happy to learn that the public pressure has borne fruit. Yashar Koach to Minister Goldknopf for his determination!”

  1. Finally, finally, someone is the Israeli government is doing something against one of the core reasons Hamas can continue to exist which is with the funding and help from UNWRA.

  2. Don’t hold your breath Biden and other anti-semites will be putting pressure on Bibi revoke the eviction order…

  3. Good Riddance & great הכנה as we head into all important day of יום-ירושלים !!! & may this inspire NYC to immediately expell UN from NYC, & sieze all unpaid expenses & debts, as well as collect all unpaid car tickets by foreign diplomats.

  4. This order should be executed immediately. Any counter orders of the courts must be ignored as these would exceed their proper jurisdiction and constitute an undue threat to internal security.
