UNRWA Demands End to Tunnel Building under Its Schools

(Jerusalem Post) Tovah Lazaroff - Palestinians must stop building tunnels under Gaza schools, UNRWA said this weekend as it made public the presence of a new tunnel under one of its schools. "The presence of a tunnel underneath an UNRWA installation, which enjoys inviolability under international law, is unacceptable. It places children and agency staff at risk," the UN agency said. Israel Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said, "We are glad that UNRWA noticed what we have been telling them for years." Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said, "This is what Hamas rule looks like and this is more proof of the double war crime committed as terror tunnels are built to attack Israelis, while using the children of Gaza as human shields."
