Bankrupt UNRWA Could Close ‘Palestinian Refugee’ Schools
With $101 million deficit, UNRWA announces it may have to close 700 schools – several of which were used by Hamas to store rockets.
Adnan Abu Hasna, UNRWA media adviser, said that the financial deficit may cause the body to close 700 schools in Gaza, Judea and Samaria, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan at the start of the next school year.
Hasna said that an official decision on closing the schools has yet to be reached, but noted that UNRWA is staggering under a $101 million deficit.
UNRWA schools have been accused of being “incubators of terror” in teaching radicalism, aside from being weapons storehouses for Hamas, as seen last summer when rockets were found at three different UNRWA facilities. After the first discovery of rockets at an UNRWA school, the organization’s workers reportedly called Hamas to come remove them.
A full 252 UNRWA schools are operating in Gaza, and are attended by roughly 248,000 students.
