TEL AVIV – Officials from the UN agency for Palestinian “refugees” will meet in Rome with world powers on Thursday in an urgent attempt to alleviate the crisis it faces after the U.S. withheld hundreds of millions of dollars in funding earlier this year.
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) only has enough cash to keep its schools and medical services open until May, its commissioner-general Pierre Krahenbuhl said.
In February, UN Watch released an 130-page report exposing 40 UNRWA school employees in Gaza and elsewhere who engaged in incitement to terror against Israelis and expressed “anti-Semitism, including by posting Holocaust-denying videos and pictures celebrating Hitler.”
Moreover, it said that in at least two cases terrorists “probably” fired rockets at Israel from the schools during the 50-day summer conflict in 2014 between Israel and Hamas.
“We pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect,” Trump tweeted.
