Syria has condemned the decision of the countries including the US, for suspending funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA).
“The decision is a blatant bias to the incitement campaign promoted by the Israeli occupation and implementation of its plans to liquidate the agency and end the services it provides to the Palestinian people,” Syria’s Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said in a statement.
The Ministry expressed that the actions “of these countries constitute a blatant aggression against human values amounting to collective punishment and reflect their abandonment of assuming the collective responsibility approved by the UN in providing support to the Palestinian refugees until a just solution to their cause is reached.”
Syria has called on the countries that chose to suspend funding to UNRWA at a time when most of Gaza’s 2.3 million people are facing high levels of hunger crises, to reverse the funding suspension decision.
