The President of the United States Donald trump rejected the request of the Israeli authorities to release the funds destined for the relief Agency for Palestinian refugees UNRWA, and direct them to the reconstruction of the Gaza strip.
As reported with reference to one of the members of the government of Israel website «20-channel», trump replied that he did not intend to provide financial assistance to those who are not willing to cooperate with him, despite the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza.
Recall that last week, Israel submitted a program to restore the infrastructure sector with the aim of improving the humanitarian situation, however, gave to understand that Finance needs an international framework. The program costs about $ 1 billion.
Earlier, the US government froze $ 70 million of aid destined for UNRWA in response to the behavior of the Palestinian authority.
