“The U.S. State Department said on Aug. 31 that it would cut US$300 million in funding this year intended for the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). … The cut to UNRWA funds was one in a series of cuts to aid that supports Palestinian health services. … Pierre Krähenbühl, UNRWA commissioner general, said in an open letter on Sept. 1 that the U.S. cuts ‘represented an evident politicization of humanitarian aid’…” (Devi, 9/15).
