Gaza Resident Tells IDF: Hamas Has Control of UNRWA in Gaza

A resident of the Gaza Strip told the IDF that the Hamas terrorist organization directly controls the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), American media reported.

In a recording obtained by the news outlet, the man stated that “the situation is terrible because the humanitarian people, those responsible for the humanitarian aid, are thieves.” He further stated that “Hamas has their hands on UNRWA administration workers, and it manages UNRWA,” and that Hamas ensures its own operatives receive any aid first before it is distributed to the civilians of Gaza as intended.

The IDF stated that the conversation was recorded when an IDF officer was delivering warnings to civilians in Gaza where they should evacuate to escape the fighting between Israel and Hamas, and where to go to receive humanitarian aid.

UNRWA has long been criticized for its cooperation with Hamas, antisemitic incitement, and employment of Hamas terrorists. It has been revealed that a teacher employed by UNRWA held one of the hostages kidnapped by Hamas during the October 7 massacre in an attic for 50 days without proper food or medical care.

On Monday, December 25, the IDF reported that dozens of explosive devices were found inside UNRWA bags during operational activity in the area of the “Al Rafaa” and “Zavaha” schools in Tuffah in the northern Gaza Strip. (INN / VFI News)

“God, we pray that the innocent Gazan civilians will receive the humanitarian aid that is intended for them and that the terrorists will leave them alone. We pray that you would stop UNRWA’s cooperation with terrorists and that no civilian cooperates with Hamas in holding hostages.”
