The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) has demanded "full respect for the sanctity of its premises" after discovering 20 rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip.

The organisation said it "strongly condemned" those responsible for placing weapons inside the building, in what it described as a "flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law".
