Watchdog finds UNRWA workers praised Hamas massacres in internal Telegram channel

An investigation by the UN Watch group finds that United Nations workers in Gaza used an internal Telegram channel, which was meant to facilitate their work, to praise the Hamas massacres on October 7.

The probe finds that many of the workers at the United Nations Relief Works Agency — the UN body for Palestinian refugees — explicitly praised the onslaught in which some 3,000 terrorists crossed into Israel, killing some 1,200 people and taking 240 hostages, most of them civilians.

“This is the motherlode of UNRWA teachers’ incitement to Jihadi terrorism,” says Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, a Geneva-based non-governmental organization that monitors the world body.

The report provides examples, including UNRWA teacher Waseem Ula who shared a post of a suicide bomb vest wired with explosives, with the caption: “Wait, sons of Judaism.”

Another UNRWA teacher, Abdallah Mehjez, explicitly called on civilians not to heed IDF evacuation orders and remain as human shields for Hamas.
