The UNRWA is Responsible for the Bombing of its Schools

There’s a very simple criteria for maintaining your status as a civilian and/or humanitarian facility. It has to be non-military.

By its own admission, the UNRWA has found a third set of rockets in one of its schools. Israel has repeatedly stated that it’s been fired on from around UNRWA schools.

Considering that the UNRWA admits the presence of rockets, it’s hard for it to deny the Israeli claims.

Nevertheless the UNRWA throws a fit each time one of its facilities is bombed when it’s being used by Hamas.

And yet it’s the UNRWA that is responsible.

At this point it’s obvious that the UNRWA is incapable of maintaining the non-military status of its facilities. Whether the organization itself is compromised or Hamas simply won’t allow it to maintain pure civilian function, it amounts to the same thing.

UNRWA facilities are used to harbor weapons and stage attacks. The UNRWA’s facilities cannot be considered civilian or humanitarian facilities. Instead they are fronts for military operations. And that is a war crime.

The UNRWA’s continued presence in Gaza facilitates a Hamas war crime.

The only lawful thing for the UNRWA to do is to announce that it will withdraw from Gaza during the conflict to avoid being involved in war crimes. Instead the UNRWA is doubling down by accusing Israel, rather than Hamas, of war crimes. And even appears to have turned over rockets to terrorists.

It’s not Israel that is guilty of war crimes for attacking UNRWA facilities. UNRWA facilities ceased to be civilian once they harbored rockets and terrorists. It’s the UNRWA that is guilty of war crimes for acting as a front for a terrorist organization.

In the fog of war, it can be hard sometimes to tell who is bombing whom and why. But there’s little doubt, by the UNRWA’s own admission, that its facilities have been turned to military purposes.

The militarization of UNRWA facilities leaves it guilty of a war crime.

  • Gee

    Considering that a majority of UNRWA employees in Gaza are in fact Hamas members makes the entire organization one giant target.

    They just found the third set of rockets after more than 3 weeks? Were they their before the war? Or did they appear from a tunnel inside the school – since we know that they could not have been moved during the war from the outside.

    The UN is an organization of war criminals – all of it

        F’ing phony!

        Get a job in Hollywood with all of the other impotent fascists.

        OMG!!!

    Israel had a chance to pull out of the UN and declare it a sham organization. If they had done so they would be in a better position to simply attack the UN as a biased participant in the conflict. Instead now they have to pretend that UNRWA works on behalf of all nations. The USA should learn a lesson from this.

    Bomb the UNRWA facilities to dust and throw them all out of the area, nothing but jihad facilitators. Time to shut this farce down for good.

  • DogmaelJones1

    Isn’t UNRWA in Gaza staffed by Hamas anyway? That would explain a lot, too.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      A lot of their locals are Hamas, especially in schools.

  • mackykam

    While bombing UNRWA it might behoove Israel to polish off those lying journalists who regurgitate Hamas talking points. Trust me: no one will miss them, not even their families!

      Love to see the BRITISH Christopher Gunness, head of UNRWA at the basement of one of those honorable facilities, before Israel bombards it to dust.

      More oxygen and space for us.

        Thanks. Saw it. Think maybe he lost his boyfriend in a bombing?

          He’s probably under a lot of pressure to get the dupes worked up. The Arabs are much better at phony drama and expect better results from their dhimmis.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      Agreed. They aren’t journalists. They’re mercenary regime supporters.

        What upscale brit doesn’t love a guy wrapped in a bed sheet. I swear, they hardly come up for air! Must be that public school sleep away thing. Calling Lawrence of Arabia.

    Just drop more bombs and don’t waste Israeli lives.
    The Palestinians are animals and they brain wash and indoctrinate their children in Jew hatred from the youngest age at home and even on TV.
    Do whatever you have to do.
    Israel is the current leader of the Free World.
    Obama switched sides.
    Too bad Israel is too moral to drop a nuke or a neutron bomb.
    Gaza is a rats nest.

    It’s not an imbalance of force. It’s an imbalance of defense.

  • objectivefactsmatter

    Just another reminder of the “fruit” of the UN and its corrupt children.
