On Tuesday, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) released drone footage showing terrorists located in a United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) compound in Rafah.

The footage captured the presence of United Nations (UN) vehicles nearby as the terrorists engaged in gunfire.

It is uncertain whether the terrorists were menacing the UN personnel present or collaborating with them. Israel’s Foreign Minister, Israel Katz, alleged that the UN was in cahoots with the terrorists and demanded the resignation of UNRWA chief Philippe Lazzarini, a call he has made previously.

The IDF released a statement:

During IDF operational activity in eastern Rafah on Saturday, terrorists were identified in UNRWA’s central logistics compound alongside UN vehicles.

In the footage, a number of terrorists and gunfire can be seen near UN vehicles and in the area of UNRWA’s logistics warehouse compound in eastern Rafah, which is a central point for the distribution of aid on UNRWA’s behalf in the Gaza Strip.

Following the event, representatives of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) conveyed the findings to senior officials in the international community and called on the UN to conduct an urgent investigation into the matter.

In addition, COGAT representatives warned the UN against the presence of terrorists in the area, and the seriousness of the danger that exists in the presence of the terrorists in the logistics center compound with regard to the continued protection of the organization’s facilities.

The IDF will continue to act in accordance with international law to distribute aid to the residents of the Gaza Strip.

Israel accuses UNRWA of being tainted by connections with terrorists and believes that the organization fuels the conflict by promoting a sense of victimhood among Palestinians.

For the past eight days, Israel has been conducting operations in Rafah, gradually taking on terrorists in what is considered the final Hamas stronghold in Gaza.
