The United Nations has become utterly confused in its statements. On one hand, Martin Griffiths, the UN Deputy Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, declared in an interview with the British TV channel Sky News on February 14: ‘We do not consider Hamas a terrorist group. It is a political movement.’ Following his logic, mass murders and rapes, taking hostages, including infants, children, and the elderly, are not acts of terror from the UN’s perspective, but legitimate means of political struggle aimed at the destruction of the state of Israel, which the UN is also aware of.

On the other hand, the leadership of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) is extremely embarrassed when it comes to the involvement of its staff in the Hamas attack on Israel on October 7, 2023. According to information published by the Wall Street Journal, about 1,200 of the 12,000 UNRWA employees in the Gaza Strip (10%) have ties with Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and half of all UNRWA employees in the sector are closely related to members of these groups. If among adult men from the Gaza Strip 15% are connected with Hamas, then among male UNRWA employees, this figure is 23%.

According to intelligence data from Israeli security services, there is a structural connection between UNRWA and Hamas, and the published data is just the tip of the iceberg.
