Hamas also stressed the importance of the role played by UNRWA in providing assistance to Palestinian refugees.
It also called on the United Nations and donor countries “not to submit to the misinformation machine driven by the Nazi Zionist entity, which has not yet provided proof of its claims, according to a statement by the Commissioner-General of UNRWA.”
EU Foreign Policy Commissioner Josep Borrell earlier said “The [Israeli] accusations must be verified. The presumption of innocence is valid for everyone, even for UNRWA.” But there is more: “t is not a secret that the Israeli government wants to get rid of UNRWA. Not [just] now, for many years before, [they have] wanted to get rid of UNRWA because they believed that if they get rid of UNRWA, they get rid of the problem of the Palestinian refugees.”
