Gaza Strip - The United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees says a Gaza staffer suspected of being elected to the Islamic militant Hamas group’s leadership no longer works for the agency.

Agency spokesman Chris Gunness says Saturday Suhail al-Hindi is no longer employed by the U.N. Relief and Works Agency. He declined to say whether al-Hindi had quit or was fired, saying the agency doesn’t “discuss the terms of departure of individual staff members.”

In February, UNRWA suspended al-Hindi - the chairman of the agency’s Palestinian workers’ union - pending the results of an internal investigation sparked by Israeli accusations that the school principal was a member of Hamas’ new political leadership.

Al-Hindi denied links to Gaza’s rulers. Hamas is listed as a terrorist organization by the United States and most of Europe.

Most people realize that the UNWRA is a pro-Hamas group that allowed Hamas to use their facilities to hide and house weapons during the last Gaza/Israeli war.
