Hamas Terrorized UN Workers and Confiscated Humanitarian Aid During Gaza War – Noam Rotenberg (Jerusalem Post)
(dailyalert.org, Sept. 12, 2014)
In a number of incidents during the Gaza war, Hamas terrorists threatened to kill UNRWA personnel if they revealed that the Islamist group was using UN facilities for purposes of war, theJerusalem Post learned from credible sources this week.
In addition, on a number of occasions, armed Hamas operatives forcefully confiscated medical supplies and food that were to be distributed by UNRWA to residents of Gaza in need of humanitarian aid, taking them for their own use.
In a few cases, both during and after the Gaza war, trucks carrying supplies to UNRWA facilities were intercepted and taken over by Hamas terrorists.
These revelations add to the question of whether reconstruction aid can be provided without it falling into the hands of Hamas.
