UN Accuses Hamas Police of Stealing Aid

 

A spokesman from the UN stated that Hamas Police raided a UN warehouse stealing 3500 blankets and 400 food parcels. The UN condemned the actions and demanded the aid be returned.

Ahmed al-Kurd, the Hamas Social Affairs Minister denied the claims, however he did admit that there were disputes with the UN agency about how to distribute the aid. The UN was accused of giving aid to opponents of Hamas.

Since Israel imposed a blockade on the Gaza Strip, approximately half the population has come to rely on UN food aid.

  ok first off  
 
This was already reported here
http://www.shortnews.com/...

secondly as it turned out Hamas said they thought the Aid was from the Hamas central government and not from the UN but when they were presented with the paper work showing it was from the UN they said they would return it on Saturday (last Saturday) ... They returned it on Saturday night (as reported on AJ English ) and the UN has since resumed distribution ...

so not only already reported but also out of date.
