It has emerged today that the explosives that killed three Israeli soldiers earlier this week in Gaza were booby-trapped into the walls of a U.N. clinic.
The three Israeli Defense Forces’ soldiers who tragically lost their lives, all from the Maglan unit, were named as: Sergeant First Class Matan Gottlieb, 21, from Rishon LeZion; Sergeant First Class Omar Chai, 21, from Savion, and Sergeant First Class Guy Algranati, 20, of Tel Aviv.
The explosives, which were deliberately planted into the walls of the medical facility by terrorists, weighed around 150kg and were put into a clinic that was built to mask and perform potential acts of terror on the IDF.
In addition, the clinic was built over a number of terror attack tunnels, intended to be used by Hamas to attack Israel.
Obviously, UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency), which runs the clinic has yet to respond to the serious allegation that it knowingly allowed one of its facilities to be used from which terror attacks could be launched.
The U.N. has been totally discredited, as it is every time Israel is attacked by one of its neighbors, as it drafts condemnation after condemnation in Geneva for Israel’s defensive war, while actively assisting the terrorists of Hamas on the ground.
There cannot be anything more morally reprehensible than the U.N., an body committed to the principle of human rights, aiding and abetting a terrorist organization in this way.
On Tuesday, Hamas and Islamic Jihad rocket arsenals were found in a UNRWA school for the third time this month. Having found the deadly rockets at the UNRWA school, it was reported that rather than destroying the rockets, UNRWA workers called Hamas to come to “remove” them.
Of course, UNWRA has neglected to comment on the deaths of the three Israeli soldiers and instead rushed to place blame on Israel for a rocket strike on one of their schools in Gaza which turned out to have been a Palestinian rocket which fell short of its target in Israel.
It remains to be seen what response, if any, will be forthcoming from UNWRA and the U.N., which seems more intent on condemning Israel than actually helping innocent civilians.
