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

Headline: “UNRWA denies that the map of Palestine was covered during the visit of [UN Secretary-General] Ban Ki-moon in Gaza”
“United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) Media Advisor Adnan Abu Hasna denied that the map of Palestine (the PA map that presents all of Israel as part of ‘Palestine’ -Ed.) was covered up at one of the UNRWA schools during the visit of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the Gaza Strip.
Abu Hasna said in a statement to the press: ‘During the visit of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in one of the UNRWA schools, the map of ‘historical Mandatory Palestine’ was not covered. He visited the school when the map was not covered.’
Abu Hasna added: ‘There was no covered map, and no senior UNRWA official ordered to cover the map. Its ]the map’s] presence does not harm the neutrality of UNRWA.’”
