Will UNRWA collapse without US support? | Inside Story



The United Nations Relief and Works Agency – or UNRWA – provides humanitarian support to millions of Palestinian refugees. Israel's war on Gaza has made its work even more vital. But the agency is under pressure. The United States has suspended funding after Israel said some of its employees were involved in Hamas' attack on October 7th. The agency denies the accusations. It wasn't enough to reassure Washington, however. And the loss of US support could prove devastating. Can UNRWA continue its work without its biggest donor?
