"For two days we were trying to move people out of that school in particular and the Beit Hanoun area in general," said an IDF official who was involved in the interactions between the IDF, UNRWA, and International Red Cross (ICRC) leading up to the incident.
The official continued: "This morning we sought a cease-fire in the area and a humanitarian evacuation of civilians, but Hamas refused — because they wanted to keep civilians in the area to protect their fighters who were firing on the IDF," the source said. The claim by Gunness and UNRWA that the IDF did not respond to their request to evacuate civilians, the source said, is "a flat-out complete and total lie."
When asked for further details about the incident, UNRWA claimed that its school in Beit Hanoun had been turned into "a battlefield" in recent days.
