Gazans plan more protests against UNRWA cutbacks

11 August 2015 9:36


UNRWA said in a statement on July 25 that it was decreasing its aid to Palestinian refugees, including those living in the besieged Gaza Strip, due to a lack of funding from its international donors.

The UN agency, which usually provides health and educational services to Palestinian refugees in 58 refugee camps throughout the Mideast, said it may have to delay the start of the academic year in some 700 UNRWA-run schools for half a million students across the region.

Over the past days, Palestinian refugees in Gaza have been holding rallies to protest the planned cutbacks.
