The Palestinian popular committees of refugee camps in the West Bank organized on Monday protests in the various refugees populations over there, to voice objection to UN’s aid reduction.
Member of the Balata refugee camp’s refugees committee, Ahmad Douqan, said that such activitie came following relentless contacts with the United Nations Agency for Works and Relief of the Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) to explore the recent reduction of the agency’s services.
Head of the Askar refugee camp’s committee, Naser Alseer, explained that the basic services have been decreased.
Other refugees’ local leaders spoke in the protests, expressing their protest against the reduction of services.
The UNRWA provides services including health, education and social for more than 4 million Palestinian refugees including 1.5 million in the Gaza Strip , about 2 million others in the West Bank and 1.5 million others in neighboring Arab countries.
The UNRWA was established in 1948, right after Israel occupied historical Palestine and displaced hundreds of thousands of thousands of Palestinians into Gaza, West Bank, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon.
