PA official: Canceling aid to UNRWA threatens peace

The Palestinian Authority (PA) envoy to Washington, Husam Zomlot, warned the U.S. on Friday against canceling aid to UNRWA, the United Nations agency serving “Palestinian refugees”, claiming that doing so would threaten the prospects of peace.

Zomlot said that by cutting its aid, the U.S. was "reneging on its international commitment and responsibility."
