Day after announcement Gaza tunnel was uncovered beneath school, PM reveals he told US envoy Nikki Haley the time may have come to close UNRWA

An an unusual step, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday called for the closing of UNRWA, the United Nations’ agency dealing with Palestinian refugees, saying he urged the US envoy to the world body to consider pushing for it to be shuttered.

On Sunday, a day after the announcement of a tunnel that was discovered June 1 underneath a UNRWA-run school in Gaza, Netanyahu said he told US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley during her visit to Israel last week that it was time to reconsider the agency’s existence.

“Hamas uses schoolchildren as human shields. This is an enemy we have been fighting for many years and committing a double war crime: On the one hand, they deliberately attack innocent civilians, and on the other hand they also hide behind children,” Netanyahu said at the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem.
