The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) pledged to investigate 10 of its staff members for anti-Israel hate speech following a report by the Geneva-based NGO UN Watch that highlighted such activity. "The Agency takes each allegation seriously. It has immediately launched a thorough investigation," UNRWA stated. Earlier this week, UN Watch reported that 22 UNRWA school employees had authored social media posts that glorified terrorism including against Israel, denied Israel's right to exist, advocated violence over peace, put Hitler in a positive light and blamed Jews for the COVID-19 pandemic. The UN Watch report gave 97 examples of such media posts dating back to 2015, of which 21 examples were from 2021 and another 10 were from 2019.
