UNRWA:n Gazan päämajan alta löytyi huippusalainen Hamasin datakeskus- työntekijät tekivät yhteistyötä terroristien kanssa

Ja tietenkin UNRWA:n johtaja Lazzarini  oli tästä tietämätön vaikka keskuksen sisäänkäynti oli humanitaarisen järjestön koulun luona. Ja professori Hannu Juusola kai taas selittää, että UNRWA:n on toimittava Hamasin kanssa yhteistyössä jotta se voi toimia Gazassa. Mitähän rahoittajavaltiot sanovat, Norja juuri antoi UNRWA:lle jättipotin? Helsingin Sanomat noteerasi tämän paljastuksen lyhyesti STT:n ja AFP:n jutulla joka keskittyi UNRWA:n puolustukseen, että se on evakuoinut henkilökuntansa Gazasta jo 12. lokakuuta ikäänkuin tuollainen keskus olisi luotu sotakuukausina.

UNRWA’s Gaza headquarters

After leaving the tunnel back through the way we entered, we boarded an armored personnel carrier to take us to the UNRWA headquarters, as walking there aboveground was too exposed to potential Hamas snipers.

The headquarters appeared to be largely intact, unlike many of the surrounding buildings that had been pummeled by Israeli strikes.

Passing through the main gate, reading UNRWA HQ GAZA, and a nearby building with similar text in English and Arabic and bearing the UN logo, we reached the courtyard from which the combat engineers dug down into the electrical room.

At the UNRWA headquarters, Aharon said his forces found several caches of weapons belonging to Hamas when they raided and battled Hamas gunmen for the complex, although it was after the UN staff had evacuated.

“Grenades, rockets, launchers, explosives, a large amount of weapons that would put any Hamas company to shame,” he said.

The IDF also said that in some of the offices of UNRWA officials, troops found equipment and documents that indicated “that the same offices were also used by Hamas terrorists.”

“There is no doubt that UNRWA staff knew that [Hamas] was digging a massive tunnel beneath them,” Aharon said. “There’s a perimeter wall, a gate, cameras, at the gate they log who comes in and out. Whoever worked at UNRWA knew very well who was coming in, and who they were covering for.”

“UNRWA provides cover for Hamas, UNRWA knows exactly what is happening underground, and UNRWA uses its budget to fund some of Hamas’s military capabilities, this is for certain,” he said.

At the main building in the UN complex, Aharon led the reporters to UNRWA’s server room, which he said sits directly above the underground Hamas data center, where the reporters had been a short while earlier.

“Some of the cables connect down,” he said, showing a line of cables running down to and into the floor, as we stood above the Hamas data center.

The IDF said the electrical cables leading from the UN building to the tunnel were providing power to the Hamas infrastructure belowground.

The UNRWA server room, unlike the Hamas one, appeared to be mostly empty. One server cabinet was placed outside the room, but it had been stripped of all the computers.

“They cleared out all the computers, all the DVRs (digital video recorder for surveillance cameras), cut [most of] the cables, this is the behavior of someone who has something to hide,” Aharon said.

“Someone who works at UNRWA, who is supposed to care for human rights, to care for the welfare of the population in Gaza, shouldn’t rush to disconnect all the DVRs, the cameras, cut all the wires and take all the computers. These are the actions of someone who knew the army was coming and wanted to hide the evidence,” he said.

Hazan said that Hamas “didn’t randomly select this area. It knows that during peacetime and in previous wars [Israel] didn’t have the legitimacy to strike a UNRWA building and collapse it on the tunnel.”

In addition to the allegations of its collusion with Hamas, Israel has also long accused UNRWA of perpetuating the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by extending refugee status to millions of descendants of Palestinians who fled or were forced out of homes in today’s Israel at the time of the establishment of the Jewish state in 1948, rather than limiting such status only to the original refugees, as is the norm with most refugee populations worldwide.

“We were shocked to the depths of our souls, that an organization that is meant to be caring for human rights, is cooperating in such a clear and brutal way, without any fears, with a terror group like Hamas,” Aharon said.

UNRWA did not immediately respond to requests for comment. In a tweet following the publication, the agency’s head Philippe Lazzarini denied any knowledge of the Hamas data center.

Moro! Olen -56 syntynyt vapaa toimittaja ja tietokirjailija Tampereelta. Olen avustanut Yleä, Aamulehteä, Ny Tidiä, mutta juttujani on julkaistu myös Kanavassa ja Parnassossa. Minulla on alempi korkeakoulututkinto Tampereen yliopistosta, aineyhdistelmässä mm. valtio-oppi ja yleinen historia. Filosofian maisterin tutkinto jäi yleisen historian gradua vaille.
Neuvostototalitarismin ja suomettumisen aikaan toimin Itä-Eurooppa-solidaarisuusryhmän vetäjänä. Kiinnostus ns. itäiseen Eurooppaan on jäänyt. Liettuan asioita olen seurannut ja koonnut kirjoiksikin: Liettuan vaikea vuosisata 1918-2018- ja liettualais-juutalaiset suhteet ilmestyi 2020. Keväällä 2023 ilmestyi kääntämäni ja saatetekstillä varustamanani Marek Edelmanin muistelmateos: Getto taistelee. Varsova 1939-43 ( Palladium)
Juutalaisuus kiinnostaa minua monimuotoisena kulttuuriperinteenä ja olen myös Israelin tukija vaikka kannatan myös palestiinalaisten oikeutta omaan valtioon. Nuorena harrastin myös Latinalaista Amerikkaa. Olen SDP:n äänestäjä isän puolelta ainakin kolmannessa sukupolvessa. Kuulun Tampereen katolliseen seurakuntaan.
