Israel’s evidence of UNRWA Hamas allegations examined

International Editor

The UN Secretary General has announced an investigation into UNRWA.

Founded 75 years ago to aid refugees of the 1948 Palestine War, the organisation currently provides support for almost six million Palestinian refugees.

But, in a dossier just six pages long, Israel has alleged that 12 of the agency’s more than thirteen thousand staff in Gaza were involved in the 7th October attacks, leading nations including the UK and the US to withdraw their financial support.
