The president of the Palestinian Authority has asked countries that halted funding for the United Nations relief agency in Gaza to reconsider, APA reports.

Ten Western countries have now suspended their funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) after allegations arose that some of its staff members were involved in Hamas’ October 7 terror attacks.

"Such positions, if maintained, would disproportionately punish millions of our people without just cause,” PA President Mahmoud Abbas said in a statement Sunday, according to WAFA, the official Palestinian news agency.

Abbas accused Israel of acting out of animus for the UN agency, saying: "Officials in the Israeli government openly expressed that there would be no role for UNRWA, revealing the true motive behind this campaign."
