U.N. Commission Says Israel Still Has Not Provided Evidence of Oct. 7 Allegations Against UNRWA

HeadlineApr 23, 2024

An independent U.N. commission headed by a former French foreign minister says Israel has offered no evidence to back up its allegations that employees of the U.N. aid agency UNRWA participated in the October 7 attacks by Hamas. The report states,”the Israeli government has not informed Unrwa of any concerns relating to any Unrwa staff based on these staff lists since 2011”.

Allegations by Israel led many countries to temporarily cut off funding just as the humanitarian crisis was intensifying in Gaza. U.S. lawmakers have banned UNRWA funding for the next year.
