"Israel’s Foreign Ministry blasted the UN’s cultural agency, UNESCO, after it passed a resolution on the Gaza war which was critical of Israel but failed to condemn Hamas.
‘Israel rejects with disgust the one-sided resolution taken by UNESCO today regarding the situation in Gaza,’ Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lior Haiat said in a statement on Friday.
‘The resolution totally ignores the October 7 massacre by Hamas terrorists, who brutally murdered about 1200 people in cold blood, and kidnapped 240 including babies, children, women, and the elderly,’ he said.
‘The resolution gives the green light to the Hamas terrorist organization, which is worse than ISIS, to continue to murder and kidnap as well as to continue to use the residents of the Gaza Strip as human shields,’ continued Haiat.
‘UNESCO is cooperating in the distortion of basic facts and in massacre denial in the service of extremist governments and supporters of terrorism. UNESCO, which dedicated a moment of silence only in memory of Palestinian victims, is an organization that has an inherent moral failing and should be ashamed of itself and of its debates.’
‘Israel thanks the countries that supported it and the amendments proposed by the United States, and opposed the Arab group's resolution,’ concluded Haiat.
The UNESCO resolution approved on Friday calls for the ‘immediate cessation of all attacks on Palestinians, especially children, women, youth, teachers, and all those working in the field of education.’..."
