The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) has admitted that it has likely revealed a tunnel beneath one of its schools that armed Palestinian groups utilized during the recent 11-day conflagration with Israel.
A UNRWA statement claimed that “the Israeli Air Force conducted strikes that caused damage to UNRWA installations, most notably to the UNRWA Zaitoun Preparatory Boys’ School “A” and Elementary Boys’ School “A.”
