The Israel Defense Forces claimed facilities of the main United Nations relief agency in Gaza were used for "terrorist purposes" in a statement to CNN on Saturday.
During a probe into the deadly October 7, 2023, Hamas attacks, investigators found evidence "incriminating several UNRWA employees for their alleged involvement in the massacre, along with evidence pointing to the use of UNRWA facilities for terrorist purposes," the IDF said.
Remember: On Friday, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East said it was immediately terminating the contracts of employees Israel had accused of being involved in the Hamas attacks.
The UN says it is conducting an investigation into the matter, while the US and a growing list of other nations have suspending their funding for the agency.
UNRWA responds: When asked about the Israeli military's claim on the use of its facilities, the UNRWA told CNN in a statement, "We don’t have more information on this at this stage," and that the internal oversight body of the UN was looking into all the allegations as part of its investigation.
