The Guardian is reporting that the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), the UN agency for Palestinian refugees has found 20 missiles in one of its schools in Gaza.
As we are aware, Israel has repeatedly accused Hamas and other terror groups in Gaza of storing munitions in civilian infrastructures and as evidenced by the findings of the UNRWA in this case it is occurring:
"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," the agency said. " UNRWA strongly condemns the group or groups responsible for placing the weapons in one of its installations," it continued. This is a flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law."Israel of course reacted to the discovery with the following statement
“Yet again, Gaza terrorists abuse UN facilities to carry out their violent activities. Hamas and other terror groups are determined to put civilians in harm’s way and will respect nothing in their violent frenzy,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Yigal Palmor told The Times of Israel. “We expect the UN and the international community to condemn and to act strongly against this brazen violation of international humanitarian law, which endangers children and UN humanitarian activities.”The UNRWA says this was the first time such a discovery had been made in one of its installations and that the missiles were safely removed.
But where were they moved? To whom were they given? Certainly the UNRWA did not return them to the terrorists that put them there as they would then be complicit in their use.
