UN Palestinian refugee agency warns of massive funding shortfall

UNRWA will appeal for $250m, worrying it may have to soon cut emergency aid after US severed contributions earlier this year.


    The UN agency for Palestinian refugees warned it is facing an unprecedented funding gap and is weeks away from cutting emergency assistance. The agency will ask for more than $250m at a donors' conference in New York.

    The agency said it has struggled since the US cut contributions earlier this year.
