Israel is calling out a United Nations aid agency for falsely claiming that the Israeli Defense Forces did not permit civilians to evacuate a Gaza school where 15 people were killed today.
The U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) laid blame for the civilian deaths on the IDF, claiming it never received approval from the IDF for an evacuation from the facility.
UNRWAwhich has been under fire in recent days for allowing Hamas to use its facilities to store rocketsreleased a statement claiming: UNRWA had been attempting to negotiate with the [IDF] a pause in the fighting during which they would guarantee a safe corridor to relocate staff and any displaced persons who chose to evacuate to a more secure location. Approval for that never came to UNRWA.
Earlier, UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness had similarly accused the IDF of preventing a civilian evacuation.
Over the course of the day UNRWA tried 2 coodinate [sic] with the Israeli Army a window for civilians 2 leave & it was never granted, UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness tweeted, following the strike.
However, in an unusual move late Thursday, multiple IDF sources rejected UNRWAs claims and characterized them as outright falsehoods when reached by the Washington Free Beacon.
For two days we were trying to move people out of that school in particular and the Beit Hanoun area in general, said an IDF official who was involved in the interactions between the IDF, UNRWA, and International Red Cross (ICRC) leading up to the incident.

Bomb Shelters are off-limits for gaza kids-
oops sorry there are NO GAZA BOMB SHELTERS- my mistake
I recall a few years ago seeing someone describe the UN as composed of Communists and Cannibals.
But there is plenty of money and supplies to build them:
If this is a UN facility, don’t they have CONTROL over this facility?
If so, why are rockets and weapons being stashed in their facility?
Either they have control over this facility and ALLOWED Hamas to stash their weapons there or they have no control over it, if so, in what sense are they still a UN facility?
Something stinks to high heavens.
nope hamas done used up all the concrete already=Israeli and Egyptian troops uncovered 1,378 Hamas tunnels for armed terrorists who built using 800,000 tons of concrete.
Hamas could have build kindergartens equipped with bomb shelters,
like Israel has built for the besieged citizens of Sderot,
UNRWA is clearly populated by mental deficients or politicians, but I repeat myself.
Where is the documentation that defines whose "permission" they need to get children away from a school or a hospital targeted by high explosives?
My understanding is that the only dangerous group whose permission was crucial to the maintenance of life and limb, is the terrorist group, Hamas, itself!
Why, when rockets were found stored within a school, did UNRWA "return" it to the terrorist Hamas organization, presumably to fire randomly at Israel?
Which group is the insane criminal group here?
no bomb shelters and yet they had enough cement to build hundreds of them instead of tunnels. With their own cement plant, they can build thousands of either:
