"Israel warned the United Nations that it would not work with those of its officials and staff members who support Hamas propaganda against the Jewish state.
‘Israel will stop working with those who cooperate with the Hamas terrorist regime’s propaganda machine,’ government spokesman Eylon Levy told reporters on Tuesday.

'We urge our allies to stand up for basic integrity and the global institutions that should serve and not sabotage international security. For too long international officials have been deflecting blame onto Israel to cover up for the fact that they are covering up for Hamas,’ he said.

‘They have let the world down, we are demanding global accountability,’ Levy said. Moving forward, he added, ‘Visa requests by UN employees will no longer be granted automatically and will instead be considered on a case-by-case basis.’
