Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has described UNRWA as “perforated with Hamas”, saying Israel has “discovered that there were 13 UNRWA workers who actually participated, either directly or indirectly, in the 7 October massacre”.
But the US, the biggest donor to the UNWRA, has said it wants to see the aid agency continue its work.
Us state department spokesman Mathew Miller said, There is no other humanitarian player in Gaza who can provide food and water and medicine at the scale that UNRWA does.
