House committee to launch investigation into UN agency for alleged ‘troubling connection’ to Hamas

A House Committee is expected to launch an investigation into a United Nations agency that provides aid to Palestinians for alleged ties to Hamas, according to a report.

The House Foreign Affairs Committee is planning to investigate the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees in the Near East, which is also known as UNRWA, according to the New York Post.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., told the outlet that there’s evidence of a connection between the UN agency and Hamas.

‘There is extensive evidence of a troubling connection between UNRWA and Hamas, and it is far deeper than was known,’ Issa said. ‘Congress must now investigate and uncover the extent of what UNRWA knew, what it did, and what it may be hiding from the world.’

LIVE UPDATES: ISRAEL AT WAR WITH HAMAS 

Since the Oct. 7 terrorist attack in Israel carried out by Hamas, troubling reports regarding the UNRWA have emerged.

One Israeli citizen taken hostage by the Hamas terrorist group said they were held for 50 days inside an attic belonging to a UNRWA teacher, according to the Jerusalem Post.

The State Department under former President Trump cut ties with UNRWA in 2018, with the agency calling the organization an ‘irredeemably flawed operation.’

However, President Biden reestablished the relationship in June 2021.

A spokesperson for Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., who chairs the body’s oversight subcommittee, told the Post that ‘He is also supportive of a probe, to put it mildly.’
