Question of Palestine home
UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA)

Statement in response to the IDF's voicemail message from Iain Hook
UNRWA is aware that that at some point in the morning before he was killed Iain Hook realised that non-UN persons were trying to break a hole in the wall at the rear of the UN compound in Jenin. We understand he approached them and told them they were jeopardizing the safety of his staff and jeopardizing the neutrality of a UN facility. The group then left the area of the back wall. At no time did any guns or gunmen enter the UN compound.
