The EU will Resume Funding for the UNRWA

The European Union will resume funding the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) since there was a halt after Israeli claims that 12 members of the agency were involved in the October 7th attack. Those accusations have been found to lack solid evidence, which is the main reason the EU has decided to begin funding the organization again.

The first tranche payment of 2024 will consist of 50 million euros, with an approved funding budget of 82 million euros for the next year. Many governments, including the United States, halted funding for the UNRWA after the Israeli accusations surfaced. However, there has been much speculation about the validity of those claims.
