@Falce73 that appears to have been the original position. I’m just wondering if it’s changed since IDF has now said otherwise.

RT @RichardEngel: UNRWA chief tells us agency was not given any warning before strikes on school.

Not a fan, apparently. RT @pettybooshwah Shut up, Andy Carvin…

@stevegraff Also, it appears the UN is denying the IDF’s claim they gave them a window to evac. May take a while to piece together the truth

Jul 24, 2014

@stevegraff Well no, b/c that’s obvious. In this case, both sides are blaming each other, so it’s worth a look.

RT @jeff_neumann: Two blasts within seconds shook our hotel window in Baghdad. Ambulances headed south on Abu Nawas #Iraq

@hypersem Yeah, I saw that. He tweeted earlier a window wasn’t granted, then IDF denied it, so was hoping for latest info.

@unrwa: so did IDF give you a window to evacuate Beit Hanoun? They’re claiming they gave you a 4-hour window but Hamas blocked evacuation.
