UK halts aid to Gaza refugees following ICJ ruling
This is shameful. Last week the International Court of Justice (ICJ) gave its verdict that Israel is potentially committing genocide in Gaza, and ordered the killing of Palestinians to stop and for humanitarian aid to be allowed in. The response of our government has instead been to suspend its funding to the UN agency which provides essential services for 1.7 million refugees in Gaza, and to minimise the significance of the ICJ.
Now, more than ever, it is essential for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) to be able to provide crucial aid to the people in Gaza. Please take 2 mins to demand action from your MP and the Foreign Office to reinstate UNRWA funding.
