SECRETARY-GENERAL CONDEMNS VANDALISM AGAINST RELIEF AGENCY'S FACILITY
 
FOR CHILDREN IN GAZA; SAYS ACT ATTEMPT TO HARM 'MOST DEFENCELESS'
 

The following statement was issued yesterday, 23 May, by the Spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:

The Secretary-General condemns the act of vandalism by intruders against a United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) summer games facility for children in Gaza.  UNRWA’s extensive summer games programmes offer a rare opportunity for relief from the deprivations and difficulties of everyday life in Gaza.  This action is an attempt to intimidate and harm the most defenceless in Gaza.  The Secretary-General calls upon the de facto authorities to ensure the safety of the United Nations operations and to allow UNRWA to carry out its work unhindered.
