UN Denies Hamas Uses Cement for Terror Tunnels

Hamas has been busy rebuilding and extending its network of terror tunnels - tunnels it plans to use to attack Israel and her people. But Arutz Sheva's Matt Wanderman writes that the United Nations claims the terror group is not using the cement it provides for such nefarious purposes:

UN Assistant Secretary-General Robert Piper claims that there is no proof that Hamas is taking advantage of UN-provided construction material for "military purposes," the pro-Hamas Middle East Monitor reports.

He made his remark after Israel announced that it was blocking the transfer of cement into Gaza because Hamas uses it to build terror tunnels. Piper said that the United Nations has provided 1.2 million tons of construction materials to Gaza, though he did not explain why despite that very few reparations have been carried out since 2014's Operation Protective Edge...

Despite Piper's protestations, Hamas seems to make far more progress on building tunnels than on repairing residential neighborhoods and public services.
