    Hamas terrorists hid a top-secret intelligence center underneath the U.N.'s Palestinian refugee agency (UNRWA) in Gaza that was uncovered by the Israel Defense Forces, the Israeli military said on Saturday.

    The Hamas intelligence center included an electrical room, industrial battery power banks, and a living space for the terrorists, The Times of Israel reported. The IDF's discovery comes after revelations that at least a dozen of the agency's workers were connected to Hamas' October 7 attack on Israel, according to an Israeli intelligence dossier.

    The controversial U.N. aid group - which says it is "committed to advancing the human development of Palestine refugees" - denied having any knowledge that Hamas was housing terrorists and a data center right underneath its feet, according to UNRWA Commissioner-General Philippe Lazzarini.

    "UNRWA is made aware of reports through the media regarding a tunnel under the UNRWA Headquarters in Gaza," Lazzarini said. "UNRWA staff left its headquarters in Gaza City on 12 October following the Israeli evacuation orders and as bombardment intensified in the area. We have not used that compound since we left it nor are we aware of any activity that may have taken place there."

    The UNRWA commissioner-general added that the agency cannot confirm or comment on the reports that the "Israeli Army has deployed troops within the UNRWA Headquarters in Gaza City."

    The Times of Israel reported that interrogations of captured terrorists helped Israeli forces pinpoint Hamas' subterranean intelligence center, which was finally located under the UNRWA headquarters in Gaza City's upscale Rimal neighborhood.

    "The IDF was here previously, the first time was to destroy the enemy, but when we were here the last time we collected a lot of intelligence documents and findings, a lot of prisoners, and thanks to this we reached here. Now we carried out a targeted operation to take this capability away," said Col. Benny Aharon, the commander of the 401st Armored Brigade, while giving a media tour of the newly discovered tunnel.

    "We had a basis of information, but not enough to be able to dig down 20 meters and find it, we needed a bit more. There's information we get from prisoners we capture, from computers we find, from documents, maps," he said.

    After it was reported that 12 UNRWA employees were tied to Hamas' brutal 10/7 attack on Israel, at least nine countries and the European Union suspended or cut back funding for the agency, which prompted U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to plead with countries to continue supporting the UNRWA.

    "[Two] million civilians in Gaza depend on critical aid from UNRWA for daily survival but UNRWA's current funding will not allow it to meet all requirements to support them in February," Guterres said in a statement. "While I understand their concerns - I was myself horrified by these accusations - I strongly appeal to the governments that have suspended their contributions to, at least, guarantee the continuity of UNRWA's operations."

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"
