As the humanitarian situation in Gaza spirals, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) warns it will likely have to halt its work across the Middle East by the end of February, APA reports citing CNN.

Nearly 20 governments have suspended $440 million in funding to the organization over allegations some of its staff were involved with Hamas’ October 7 attack on Israel.

“If the funding remains suspended, we will most likely be forced to shut down our operations by the end of February – not only in Gaza, but also across the region,” the agency’s Commissioner-General Philippe Lazzarini said Thursday.
