UN Special Envoy Calls for Gaza Aid Cutoff as Long as Hamas Is in Power
A special envoy to the United Nations (UN) wants international humanitarian organizations to cease aid transfers to Gaza, “as long as Hamas is in control.”
Recent reports have detailed how Hamas is diverting millions of dollars intended for Gaza’s civilians in order to rebuild the organization’s terrorist capabilities.
“The enemy of the people of Gaza is Hamas, not Israel. Hamas has hijacked the coastal strip and rules over its people with an iron fist,” UN Special Envoy Laurie Cardoza-Moore said last Thursday. “For decades, the leadership of Hamas has robbed its people of aid money…The time has come to halt all aid money into the Gaza Strip as long as Hamas is in control.”
Cardoza-Moore’s strong message came shortly after a Gaza-based UN employee was indicted for laundering charitable donations to improve Hamas’ naval capabilities. Earlier this month, Israel’s Shin Bet domestic security service reported that Hamas funnelled tens of millions of dollars from World Vision, a US-based international charity.
The terrorist group reportedly siphoned 60 percent of the charity’s resources in Gaza to reconstruct Hamas’ tunnel network and military installations, in addition to purchasing weapons intended to kill Israelis. This translated to roughly $7.2 million each year.
