For the second time in less than a week, rockets have been found in a school in Gaza operated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, the body said
“Today, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip,” the organization said in a statement issued Tuesday. “As soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of rockets. The school is situated between two other UNRWA schools that currently each accommodate 1,500 internally displaced persons.”
As it did the last time around when missiles were found in a school it operates, UNRWA said it “strongly and unequivocally condemns the group or groups responsible for this flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law.”
UNRWA, the UN agency charged with overseeing humanitarian efforts in Gaza, said it immediately “informed the relevant parties and is pursuing all possible measures for the removal of the objects in order to preserve the safety and security of the school.” The organization again pledged to launch a “comprehensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding this incident.”
Israeli officials reacted furiously to the discovery. “How many more schools will have to be abused by Hamas missile squads before the international community will intervene,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Yigal Palmor told The Times of Israel. “How many times can it turn its head the other way and pretend that it just doesn’t see?”

UN, what a joke, a very bad joke.
We need to get the US out of the UN, and the UN out of the USA. Most countries represented by the UN hate and vote against the USA on almost every issue. Let's turn that building into something that is useful.
Check the crates - probly got U.N. return addresses
nothing surprises me any more
UN, TERRORISTS NOW ONLY TERROR NATIONS AND OUR PRES LOVES THEM B/C HE IS ONE OF THEM. JOKE, THEY NEED TO BE OFF OF THIS COUNTRY. UN WANTS GLOBAL GOVT SO DOES OBAMA THUS THEY DON'T CARE. THEY TOO ARE AGAINST THE SOVEREIGNTY OF THE US AND HATE ISRAEL
Did someone give the American press this memo? All I read is about Israel's destructive death rockets hitting hospitals. Nice to know the press is ALWAYS biased. Take a hint Liberal American Jew - you are voting for the same guy who the Muslims voted for. You voted for the annihilation of Israel.
President Obama just finished his mega million dollar vacation in Martha's Vineyard and now he is headed off for political fundraisers - but - "he is in touch". And - they raised one million dollars at the fund raiser and it cost us 6-10 million to send the creep. But, that ONLY bothers conservatives. Liberals are full of hot air that expands in them because they will not discuss politics - and that process blows out their brains!
Obama is about as 'in touch' as liberals are 'in touch'. They are all beyond my scope of logic, reason, patience and tolerance. Liberal Americans have literally tortured me for the last 6 years. I will hold them each and every one responsible for the death of America.
At least its nice to know he is not raising as much money as he used to.
Does anybody buy this? They didn't know or only acknowledging it now because Israel is combing the strip for these caches and they didn't want it to appear that they were allowing these schools to be used to hide and protect the missiles? How do you hide rockets in a school without it being noticed? The UN, with its 22 Arab countries, is a willing conspirator!
apparently the pro Palestine/hamas terrorists activists did not get the memo on this.
Reading between the lines, Hamas is setting up the UN schools to be bombed. They think they will score a double win by the PR and inciting the UN to respond and attack Israel. Freak it bomb the crap out of them any way! In fact, it might be time to level the entire area. That will send them a loud and clear message!
HAMAS & UN are coconspirators!
