Israeli UN Ambassador Danny Danon addressed UN Secretary Ban Ki-Moon Tuesday, demanding an end to Hamas's exploitation of the UN.

Danon's appeal came following the arrest of a UN employee operating in Gaza as part of the UN Development Program (UNDP) who allegedly acted as an agent planted by Hamas in the UN agency with aims to promote terrorism in the Strip.

"This is not an isolated incident, but a worrying trend of systematic exploitation of UN bodies by Hamas terrorists," Danon said.

He added that if the UN is truly interested in improving the lives of the people of Gaza then they must immediately oust and detain any and all employees that are working for Hamas and cut all ties with organizations that assist terrorists.
