Following intelligence provided by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Shin Bet, the Israeli Air Force carried out a precise strike on a compound located inside an UNRWA school in the Nuseirat area of Gaza where Hamas terrorists - including an anti-tank missile operative and a Nukhba terrorist - were operating, according to the IDF. 

The compound that was struck also contained weapons, including mortars and explosives, as evidenced by the numerous secondary explosions after the air strike. The strike was carefully planned and carried out using precise munitions to mitigate any harm to civilians in the area.

Officials of UNRWA in New York continue to assert that their infrastructure in Gaza is not used by Hamas and their allies.

Similarly, they downplay the affiliation with Hamas of hundreds of their employees.

Philippe Lazzarini, the Commissioner-General of UNRWA, refuses to acknowledge the evidence, like most of his colleagues at the UN.
