Hamas rejects claims it has tunnels under Gaza schools

UN condemns Hamas for tunnel under schools in Gaza

KHAN YUNIS, Palestinian Territory - Qatar, one of the few foreign backers of Hamas, faces massive pressure from its Gulf neighbours to cut ties with the Islamic militant group.

The Islamic Jihad Palestinian militant group said the man killed was a member of their armed wing.

"Aeid Jumaa, 35, was killed and six other Palestinians were wounded during clashes along the Gaza border (with Israel) north of Jabalia", ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.

Over the years, Gaza's Hamas rulers have built a labyrinth of tunnels, some passing under the border into Israel which they used to launch attacks during their last conflict in 2014.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on Sunday for the dismantling of the U.N. agency that aids millions of Palestinian refugees, accusing it of anti-Israeli incitement and saying he had conveyed his message to the US ambassador to the United Nations.




Residents in the enclave, run by Islamist Hamas group, said the protesters were throwing stones near the fence when the Israeli troops shot at them.

The UNRWA "condemns the existence of such tunnels in the strongest possible terms. It is unacceptable that students and staff are placed at risk in such a way", he said.

Saudi Arabia is calling on Qatar to cut ties with Hamas.

A Hamas source told Israel Radio on Saturday that the organization's leadership was also concerned the Qatari diplomatic crisis would harm recent efforts at reconciliation between the organization and the Egyptian government.

At least 248 Palestinians and one Jordanian citizen have been killed since a wave of sporadic violence began in 2015 in Israel and the Palestinian Territories.

Gunness said the agency had "robustly intervened and protested to Hamas in Gaza".
