John Ging (born 1965) is an Irish national and former officer in the Irish Army who served as head of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in the Gaza Strip from 2006 to 2011. As head of the United Nations’ 10,000 employee operation there, he became a sought-after commentator by the media and an information source for foreign governments during Israel’s 2008-2009 offensive in Gaza.
Here’s part of his current UN bio:
John Ging, an Irish national, was appointed by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as Director of the Operational Division at OCHA in February 2011. He oversees the day-to-day management of all OCHA field operations worldwide and on behalf of the Emergency Relief Coordinator, and is her day-to-day focal point for supporting Humanitarian Coordinators. Mr. Ging is also the lead adviser to the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs on operational decision-making.
It’s rare that we hear such admissions, even from reporters in Gaza, considering the Media cover-up of Hamas crimes.
