US to cut more than a half of the Palastinian Aid..

Published on January 16, 2018 by   ·   No Comments

The United States is cutting more than half of its planned funding to the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees, a source has told Al Jazeera.
Washington will give the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) $60m in aid for Palestinians but will hold back a further $65m, a source knowledgeable with the matter said on Tuesday, speaking on condition of anonymity.
For nearly 70 years, UNRWA has been the lifeline to the more than five million registered Palestinian refugees in the occupied territories and neighbouring countries such as Lebanon and Jordan.
It offers support in food supply, access to education, healthcare, social services and employment.
“This is going to be a big blow,” Al Jazeera’s James Bays, reporting from the UN headquarters in New York, said of the US move.
“UNRWA is the agency that deals with the needs of so many desperate people.”
On January 3, less than a month after prompting Palestinian anger and international outcry for naming Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, US President Donald Trump had threatened to cut aid to Palestinians.
“If the services stop, there will be a revolution,” Salah Ajarmeh, a Palestinian refugee in Aida camp told Al Jazeera last week.
“Palestinian uprisings began in the refugee camps in Jordan and Syria, and this will happen again.”
