Hamas undermines the education of Palestinian children inside UN schools

When I said ‘undermines’ in my headline I was deliberately being ambiguous. Hamas have been undermining two UN Palestinian schools in particular but not in the way that you may first have assumed from the headline. They have been literally digging (mining) underneath the schools in order to construct a terror tunnel.

Hamas Terror Tunnel discovered under UN School in Gaza

Earlier this week, UNWRA, the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees uncovered a tunnel belonging to Hamas underneath 2 elementary schools in  Gaza. The tunnel passes underneath both the Maghazi Elementary Boys School and the Maghazi Preparatory Boys School.
…”The construction and presence of tunnels under UN premises are incompatible with the respect of privileges and immunities owed to the United Nations under applicable international law, which provides that UN premises shall be inviolable. The sanctity and neutrality of UN premises must be preserved at all times.”

The agency also said it condemns “the existence of such tunnels in the strongest possible terms,” adding that it was “unacceptable that students and staff are placed at risk in such a way.”

Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon  responded to the news by stating “the cruelty of Hamas knows no bounds as they use the children of Gaza as human shields. Instead of UN schools serving as centers of learning and education, Hamas has turned them into terror bases for attacks on Israel.”

Terror groups in Gaza have used UNRWA facilities in the past.  A UN inquiry found  that Palestinian groups hid weapons in three UN-run schools in Gaza and  likely used UNRWA schools  to fire rockets at Israel during Operation Protective Edge.

While Hamas use concrete provided by countries inside the UN to build terror tunnels and put their own Palestinian children at risk, Israel spends their money on protective technology including concrete rocket shelters for their children’s schools.
