IDF Discovers Hamas Tunnel Inside UN School Compound

( – The United Nations has more questions to answer after Israeli troops found a terrorist headquarters inside one of its schools. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) also found a tunnel entrance concealed in a child’s room. As troops close in on the last Hamas stronghold, the terror group continues to hide behind civilians.

On June 6, the IDF announced that it had found the entrance to a Hamas tunnel concealed under the floor in a child’s bedroom. The chilling discovery was made in a home in the southern Gaza city of Rafah, near the Egyptian border. Photos released by the Israeli military show the tunnel entrance beside a child’s bed in a pink-painted room, with a removable section of floor acting as a trapdoor. Hamas uses the tunnels as armories, shelters, and headquarters, but refuses to let Gaza’s civilians shelter in them during Israeli raids. The terror group claims it’s the UN’s responsibility to protect civilians, even though Hamas has been the government in Gaza for 18 years.

Whatever Hamas says, the UN isn’t responsible for providing shelter to Palestinian civilians. On the other hand, it does have an obligation to be impartial, and Israel is collecting a formidable amount of evidence that UNRWA—the UN agency that supports Palestinian refugees—employs a lot of Hamas members and sympathizers.

The same day as the tunnel was discovered, Israeli jets hit a Hamas compound concealed inside a UNRWA school. The IDF X (formerly Twitter) account said the compound was shared by Hamas and Islamic Jihad and contained terrorists who had taken part in the October 7 massacre last year.

After the October 7 attacks, which saw over 1,200 Israelis murdered and more than 250 taken hostage, Israel claims several UNRWA staff praised the terrorists. One released hostage says they were held captive in the home of a UNRWA teacher. Several weapon caches have been discovered in UN compounds, as well as a major tunnel complex under the UNRWA headquarters in Gaza City.
