State of Palestine: UNRWA staff protest against job cuts in Gaza

Employees of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) rallied in front of the western gate in central Gaza City on Wednesday, protesting against the decision to terminate and downgrade hundreds of employees’ permanent contracts. UNRWA’s decision to replace permanent contracts with temporary ones follows a series of other reductions that have recently been put in... Еще place. Last month, the international agency terminated its emergency food programme following severe budget cuts due to the US's decision to withdraw most of its financial aid to the organisation. In January, the administration of US President Donald Trump said it would withhold $65 million (€56m) of funding out of a planned $125 million to UNRWA, calling on other nations to contribute more.
