Dozens of Palestinians marched on Monday in Bethlehem city in protest at UNRWA’s decision to reduce its services to Palestinian refugee camps in the West Bank.
The protesters raised banners condemning UNRWA cuts and asking the UN agency to backtrack on its decision.
Head of the Popular Committee of al-Fawwar refugee camp, Afif Ghatasha, in a speech called on UNRWA to abide by all international resolutions related to the Palestinian refugees’ issue until they return to their villages from which they were expelled in 1948.
Ghatasha stressed that there is a US-Israel conspiracy aimed at liquidating the Palestinian refugees’ issue and dropping the right of return.
He added that protests will continue and even escalate in case UNRWA does not reverse its decision.
