Israel on Thursday called 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 in an Israeli attack, reports the Washington Free Beacon.
The UN 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.
UNRWA released 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.

Gazians need to have a call-out-your-rockets cart dragged through the streets.
The UN has always hated Israel..I can’t remember a time when they actually respected Israel, they have always wanted Israel’s demise..they return rockets to Hamas..they are aiding and abetting them, probably cheering every time a rocket is fired
Was Code Pink and Bill Ayers supplying rockets?
Pray America wakes up
Israel ought to stop pussyfooting around and do to Gaza what we did to Tokyo in 1945.
Geesh! I just heard a ‘news’ piece on FOX Radio of a Pali woman screaming her bloody guts out .....which they reported ‘she could hardly speak’. Fox is in the sh!tter for ‘Pallywood’.
Dead civilians is part of the Hamas battle plan, and they need not be Israelis.
Fox News Radio is as objective as CNN.
Yesterday a CNN reporter said that he had gone through the UN school where there was a claim that it had been hit by Israeli artillery. Based on his reporting as to the nature of the damage it was apparent that the damage and deaths, were the result of the misfiring of a Hamas rocket. The school was being used as a launch site by Hamas.
“In both cases UNRWA said it “informed the relevant parties,” but did not identify who had been contacted.
It was later reported that rather than destroying the rockets, UNRWA workers called Hamas to come remove them.”
Well, then there you are.
United Nations Really Wants Armageddon.
This is so stupid.
Hamas has declared war on Israel, repeatedly. They have said they will "open the Gates of Hell".
Hamas wants war. They should get war, until they don't want it anymore.
How many schools were there in Hamburg on July 24, 1943? How many were there on July 30, 1943?
