Israel arrests UN Gaza employee for aiding Hamas

World Vision temporarily suspended its Gaza operations in the wake of the claims, while funding for the charity from Australia and Germany has also been put on hold pending further investigation.

The indictment came on the heels of two other cases of Hamas operatives allegedly infiltrating global aid organizations. In his indictment, the Shin Bet also named an employee of Save the Children that it believes belongs to Hamas.

The UNDP said it has removed more than one million tons of rubble as well as 2,761 unexploded munitions through the project. She said she discovered this while her group researched a lawsuit against the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which in the past was involved in attacking Israelis.

Israel said it had informed UNDP of the charges but the United Nations agency did not immediately respond to the claims. A bowl for donations connects to a shaft leading underground, where an armed, masked man stashes cash. Israel has claimed repeatedly that the United Nations was being taken advantage of by Hamas in Gaza in an effort to tarnish the worldwide body's critical work in the beleaguered territory. If confirmed, Hamas's embezzlement of aid funds would be "reprehensible", according to the statement.

Zuhri denied the accusations, saying they are "false and have no basis".

"We are now supporting more than 100,000 vulnerable children and their families, providing assistance in several areas, including education, child protection, nutrition, water and sanitation". Who wants to donate to a child welfare organization whose goods are being used by a group like Hamas? In spite of Halabi's confession, his defense attorney says his client is innocent and that Hamas had brazenly stolen World Vision materials for its own use.




"World Vision's cumulative operating budget in Gaza for the past ten years was approximately $22.5 million, which makes the alleged amount of up to $50 million being diverted hard to reconcile", the statement read.

Israel informed U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's office and the UNDP director in NY of Bursh's arrest and details from his indictment, an Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman said. Halabi and Borsh had never been operatives for the Islamist group.

Gazans describe a mode of survival.

The Hamas military wing wanted him to supply them with information about individuals placed in global organisations in Gaza by the United States, said the charge sheet. According to a ministry spokesman, the residents of Gaza Strip can not be provided with their needs without global support.

Mr. Halabi confessed to these acts during an investigation, the officials said.

This news comes just days after Israel accused a World Vision employee of funneling millions to Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip. If Halabi is proven guilty of the allegations against him, then Hamas is jeopardizing humanitarian aid for its own people on goal.
