Arabic media outlets are reporting that a general strike was declared for all of Gaza on Monday and Tuesday to allow the population to attempt to break through the border with Israel for the culmination of the “Great Return March” riots.

The Coordinating Committee for Return and Breaking the Siege announced the strike, issuing a statement saying, “The strike will include official institutions, popular and commercial sites, and all aspects of daily life, including the institutions of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).”

RT Arabic adds that the streets in Gaza towns and neighborhoods have become empty after shops and government and private institutions closed their doors.

It seems apparent that this committee is really part of Hamas, because no one would be able to close government institutions in Gaza without Hamas support.

From what is being reported, it appears that UNRWA is indeed participating in these strikes.

This means that the UN is actively participating in Hamas-organized anti-Israel riots and UNRWA, against its own policies, is engaging in political activity encouraging violent activity against Israel.

Just another question for reporters to avoid asking during UNRWA’s next press conference about how they managed to convince another nation to donate a couple of million dollars to an organization that violates the UN’s own rules of non-partisanship and non-violence every day.
