The UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) is unable to confirm Israel’s reports about a Hamas tunnel allegedly found under its headquarters in the Gaza Strip, UNRWA Commissioner General Philippe Lazzarini said, APA reports.

"We are unable to confirm or otherwise comment on these reports," the Al Hadath television quoted him as saying.

"UNRWA staff left its headquarters in Gaza City on 12 October following the Israeli evacuation orders," Lazzarini said. "We have not used that compound since we left it nor are we aware of any activity that may have taken place there."

He also said the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have not yet officially notified him about the findings.

On Saturday, the IDF press service reported that its troops had uncovered a tunnel used by military intelligence units of Palestine’s radical movement Hamas under the UNRWA headquarters in Gaza City, the administrative center of the Gaza Strip.
