Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman responded Wednesday night to the UN condemning Israeli attacks on UNRWA facilities as “outrageous, unacceptable, and unjustifiable.”

UN officials should ensure their facilities are not being used to store weapons and launch rocket attacks, the foreign minister said, adding that institutions such as the UN Human Rights Council must not become a platform to embolden and encourage terrorism.

Had the UN been fulfilling its duties, in accordance with the principles on which it was founded, the organization would form an international force to rid Gaza of Hamas' terror regime rather than wait for Israel to do it.
