That the middle East the UN Agency for Palestinian refugees may lose funding, January 2 told the US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley. She noted that Donald trump does not intend to transfer money to UNRWA until the Palestinian leadership will not return to the negotiating table.
Israel officially the decision of the White house did not respond. However, the TV channel «Hadashot» reported that sources in the Israeli foreign Ministry suggested that budget cuts of UNRWA will lead to the deterioration of the situation in the Gaza strip and may result in a humanitarian catastrophe. Diplomats believe that in the current difficult situation, it is not in the interests of Israel.
The website «Mako» writes that diplomats agree in the IDF. The military also believe that reducing aid to the Gaza strip, will not help improve the situation.
