Feature: Gaza refugees worried over fate of UN's Palestinian refugee agency amid U.S., Israeli pressure

Palestinian woman Reem Abu Amer living in difficult conditions is seen at her slum in Nuseirat Refugee Camp, central Gaza Strip, on Jan. 11, 2018. Israeli and International reports said the United States intents to freeze or delay its financial fund to the United Nations for Relief and Work Agency for Palestinian refugees in the Far East (UNRWA) and stop aid to the Palestinians until they return to the negotiations table with Israel. UNRWA, which provides assistance in education, health and food to some five million registered Palestine refugees in the Middle East, is already suffering from a 49 million U.S. dollars financial deficit and any fund suspension would have a negative impact on its work.
