Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon slammed UNRWA for its use of a Syrian girl's picture in order to fundraise for Gaza, which "has long suffered a siege."

In a Facebook post, Danon wrote, "UNRWA does not let facts confuse them. In 2015, the little girl in the picture was Syrian, and lived in the outskirts of Damascus."

"But in 2017, she became a girl from Gaza, which is under Israeli siege."

Danon's post was "shared" thousands of times on the social media platform.

Last week, Danon was elected as deputy president of the UN General Assembly. He will begin his new job when the General Assembly convenes in September.

Danon's role will include chairing the meetings of the General Assembly as well as taking an active role in establishing the schedule of the discussions in the General Assembly.

"I am proud to represent Israel in this important role," said Danon. "We have proven once again that Israel can become involved in every role in the UN and the obsessive attempts to prevent Israel from maintaining its proper place in the UN will not succeed."
