31 August, 2018 - by Martina Anderson MEP

Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has slammed the decison by the US to end all funding for the UN's Palestinian refugee agency.

Marina Anderson said:

“The US’s decision to end all funding to the UN Relief and Works Agency (Unrwa) an agency supporting Palestinian refugees is deplorable.

“This decision will have a devastating impact on the lives of many Palestinian refugees as the agency could be forced to cut health care, education and social services.

“The international community, including the US, should stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people, they have a responsibility to protect the rights of the Palestinian refugees and provide them with essential services.”
