The US administration is about to stop supporting UNRWA to allocate tunnels to issues that benefit US policy

The US administration of President Donald Trump has decided to end the funding of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) as CNN quoted from a source saying that the decision was expected to be announced in the next few weeks.

The announcement is also expected to criticize the way in which UNRWA works, as well as to reduce the number of Palestinians considered refugees, and focus only on the 700,000 who were displaced by Zionist gangs from their homes in 1948-1949, according to the same source.

The source’s announcement comes two days after Foreign Policy confirmed the decision, quoting unnamed sources, who said that Trump’s decision was made at a meeting in early August between Trump, his adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo.

The magazine said that the US administration informed several governments which wasn’t mentioned with the decision.

Last Saturday, Israeli media reported that the Trump’s administration was moving towards the beginning of September to announce steps that would change the way UNRWA operates and aim to abolish the right of return of refugees.

The second channel said that the American administration will consider the number of Palestinian refugees half a million only, not 5 million, as UNRWA says, referring to the recognition only of persons displaced by Zionist gangs from their villages and cities in 1948.

According to the Hebrew channel, the Trump administration will also take a series of actions in this context, declaring full funding for UNRWA in a number of areas, and creating a new legal formula to ensure that refugee status is not inherited from grandparents and fathers to children.

She noted that these steps may be started to implement effectively next week.

Pointing out that some Israeli officials familiar with it, and they described it as historical.

UNRWA was established by a resolution of the United Nations General Assembly in 1949 to provide assistance and protection to Palestine refugees in its five areas of operation: Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

The number of Palestinian refugees living inside and outside Palestine is 5.9 million, according to the latest official Palestinian statistical data.

The Right of Return, 194, issued on 11 December 1948 by the United Nations General Assembly, provides for the right of Palestinian refugees to return and receive compensation.
