Bibi: Hamas Committed Double War Crime

Stand for Israel reported to you about the latest Hamas-built terror tunnels found beneath U.N.-run schools in Gaza. Now PM Netanyahu has condemned the terrorist group's actions, Israel Hayom's Daniel Siryoti reports, calling for the dissolution of the UNRWA:

"In recent days, a Hamas tunnel was discovered under two schools in Gaza," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting. "Hamas is using schoolchildren as human shields, and this is the enemy that we have been fighting for many years -- an enemy committing a double war crime."

"Hamas is intentionally attacking innocent civilians while simultaneously hiding behind children," Netanyahu explained. "On Friday, I instructed the director of the Foreign Ministry to file an official complaint against Hamas with the U.N. Security Council."

"Last week, I met with U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley," the prime minister told his cabinet ministers. "I thanked her, on your behalf, too, for her forceful remarks in support of Israel and against the anti-Israel obsession in the U.N."

Referring to the fact that the Hamas terror tunnel was discovered earlier this month under two United Nations Relief and Works Agency schools in Gaza, Netanyahu went on to say that in his meeting with Haley, "I told her it was time to reexamine the continued existence of UNRWA."

He went on to note that "UNRWA, by its very existence, and by its actions from time to time unfortunately, perpetuates the Palestinian refugee problem rather than resolving it. That is why the time has come to dissolve UNRWA and incorporate parts of it into the office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees..."
