Gaza bomb maker was also UN school headmaster

Tuesday, May 06, 2008 |  by Staff Writer

A senior Gaza terrorist bomb maker killed in a pinpoint Israeli military strike last week was revealed on Tuesday to have also been the headmaster of a local United Nations school.

Following his death, Gaza's Hamas rulers hailed Awad Al-Qiq as a martyr and praised him for his years of work as the head engineer of the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization's bomb-making unit.

Reuters reported that the revelation of Al-Qiq's double life as a school headmaster and science teacher had caused great embarrassment to the UN Relief and Works Agency, which runs the school. The agency has been repeatedly accused by Israel of aiding and even putting Palestinian terrorists on its payroll.
