UNRWA hides map of “Palestine” during visit by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

Picture of the map of Palestine at the UNRWA school in plain sight (left)
and hidden for Ban Ki-moon (right)

Headline: “Gaza - the map of Palestine was covered at the school that [UN Secretary-General Ban] Ki-moon visited”
     “The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) covered the map of Palestine (the PA map that presents all of Israel as part of ‘Palestine’ -Ed.) on the walls of the Al-Zeitoun School while [UN Secretary-General] Ban Ki-moon was at the school, in which he held a press conference. The matter aroused the anger of Gaza residents.
The picture shows a board with the map of Palestine having been covered with a white cloth while Ban Ki-moon held his press conference at the UNRWA school.
An activist on Facebook responded to this move: ‘The map of Palestine was covered at the UNRWA school in Gaza, which Ban Ki-moon visited a short time ago, because it presents historical Palestine, and that (i.e., it being covered) was so that he would not express his concern over it!’”
