Letter to the Editor of Yedioth from UNRWA Spokesperson rejecting false allegations

Dear Sir/Madam,

The article in your paper today (8 January 2010) "Israel to pay the UN Compensation" falsely alleges that there were militants in our compound in Gaza when it was attacked by the IDF on 15 January 2009. This is blatant misinformation. At no stage has any evidence been produced to show that there were militants in any UN installations during the fighting in Gaza. The constant repetition of these falsehoods has had the unfortunate effect of embedding them in the minds of the Israeli public.

Chris Gunness,
UNRWA Spokesman.
