Spain has refused to halt funds to UNRWA following the Israeli regime’s accusations that a few members of the UN Palestinian aid fund took part in the Al-Aqsa flood operation. More than 12 countries cut funds to the starving and besieged Palestinian people, but Spain renewed its commitment to continue contributing towards UNRWA, three-fold.
“We will not modify our relationship with UNRWA although we are closely monitoring the internal investigation and the results it may yield due to the actions of a dozen of the around 30,000 people who work for this UN agency,’ Albares said in the Foreign Affairs Commission in the Congress of Deputies.
Spain’s 2023 contribution to UNRWA totaled €18.5 million, including €10 million, which was approved in December 2023.
The decision came in the wake of the government’s resolution to triple its cooperation and humanitarian aid to Palestine.
