IDF destroys UNRWA building

The Palestinians are reporting that Israel destroyed a building of UNRWA and 15 people were killed in the strike. The IDF says it is looking into it.

While normally UNRWA buildings should not be legitimate targets, I think we are well past that point here.

With Hamas regularly using civilian locations as their headquarters and as missile storage sites, every site is really a military target. With the UNRWA already being caught with its pants down at least 3 times, as having Hamas missiles stored within their buildings, I think UNRWA sites should all be considered military targets. With UNRWA handing missiles over to Hamas, instead of to international bodies, or Israel, or even the PA, they should be considered just another part of Hamas, and therefore also a target.

If UNRWA wants to assist Hamas, they have to accept the consequences of that. Just like Hamas and any of its sites and buildings are targets, UNRWA should be exactly the same. The IDF has nothing to look into, unless it is looking into it to declare a successful mission.

  1. Hello,
    I have been following the situation at beit hanoun. Cnn reports they found no remnants of missiles 3 hours after the attack- no remnants from 3 or 4 explosions?
    Also the guardian reports that a witness said she was told to go outside to wait for the bus at 1130. Why did the bus take 4 hours to get to beit hanoun? Who was operating or delaying the buses?

    The shelling/missiles happened at 3 or 330, idf says they told them to evacuate from 11-2.
    Why did they agree to evacuate if there were no military activities in the area?
    Just putting this together sounds extremely contrived /set up by Hamas for their purposes.



    Sabah Kafarna, 35, had also been sheltering at the school. "At about 11.30 someone from the municipality came to tell us that we were going to be moved because it was too dangerous. But the buses didn't come. That's why [there were] so many people all outside when the shells landed," she said. "The shells came one after the other. I was inside by the windows when they smashed."
    Thursday's assault on the school – one of the grimmest incidents of the war – occurred at about 2.50pm as the playground was crowded with families waiting to be ferried to safety. According to survivors, one shell landed in the schoolyard followed by several more rounds that hit the upper stories of the building.

  2. UNRWA is a Hamas ally.
