Israel on Tuesday issued a stern warning to the United Nations, declaring its intention to cease collaboration with any UN officials or staff members who engage in or support Hamas’ “propaganda machine” against the Jewish state.

Israeli government spokesperson, Eylon Levy, told reporters: “Israel will stop working with those who cooperate with the Hamas terrorist regime’s propaganda machine.”

The announcement came shortly before the UN disclosed the appointment of Sigrid Kaag, former Dutch finance and deputy prime minister, as the Senior Humanitarian and Reconstruction Coordinator for Gaza. According to a UN statement, Kaag’s newly established role will be to “facilitate, coordinate, monitor, and verify humanitarian relief consignments to Gaza” as well as to “establish a United Nations mechanism to accelerate humanitarian relief consignments to Gaza through States which are not party to the conflict.”

Levy, in his remarks to the media, criticized the UN’s involvement in the war, describing it as “deeply problematic.” He argued that international officials have been unfairly blaming Israel while ignoring Hamas’s actions.

“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.

He even went as far as to accuse UN employees of being “complicit” in Hamas’s actions.

“In failing to condemn Hamas for hijacking aid, and in failing to condemn it for waging war out of hospitals, they have been complicit partners in Hamas’s human shield strategy.”

“They have let the world down, we are demanding global accountability,” Levy said.
