According to Reuters, a cache of weapons have been found on the campus of a United Nations Relief Works Agency school for the third time since the beginning of the ground operations of Operation Protective Edge.
The first cache of weapons was found two weeks ago amid simultaneous reports that Hamas was firing rockets right next to a UNRWA school.
Last week, UNRWA turned over the weapons cache to Hamas.
Later in the week, a second cache was found at a UNRWA school. UNRWA subsequently acknowledged that the latter cache “went missing.”
In addition, UNRWA supplies have been found in Hamas terror tunnels.

These incidents raise further questions about the neutrality of UNRWA. Anti-Israel comments made by UNRWA’s spokesman, Chris Gunness, led to the demand that he be suspended from his position by Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosor.
In The Real Palestinian Refugee Crisis, which was published in the May 2014 issue of The Tower Magazine, Assaf Romirowsky quoted a former UNRWA official acknowledging that it has “no steps at all to prevent members of terrorist organizations, such as Hamas, from joining its staff.”
