Statement: Response to the naming of a community centre in Burqa, Occupied West Bank

Date: Sunday, May 28, 2017

UN Women supported the rehabilitation of a community building in Burqa last year but has had no role in the naming or any other activity related to the centre since the completion of the project was at the end of 2016. The UN Women logo in the recent inauguration event of the centre was used without any prior authorization from the United Nations.

UN Women strongly condemns all acts of terrorism and the glorification of such acts.

UN Women dissociates itself from the centre and all related activities and, at the request of UN Women, the logo has been removed.
