Israeli ambassador says UN ‘buried its head in sand’ regarding Hamas allegations

Israel’s ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan says on X that UNRWA head Philippe Lazzarini “refused” an Israeli request to search UNRWA facilities in Gaza after passing evidence showing the Hamas terror group had been using the facilities, accusing him of trying to avoid hearing about such allegations.

Erdan, who calls on Lazzarini to resign, does not say if the agency was informed specifically about the Hamas data center the army says was found beneath its Gaza headquarters.

Lazzarini said earlier that UNRWA does not have “the capacity to undertake military inspections of what is or might be under its premises.”
