DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:59 A.M)- This Tuesday, United States Ambassador to the United-Nations, Nikki Haley, announced the intentions of the US to halt aid to UNRWA, today going a step further extending the halting of funds to the Palestinian Authority (PA).
Nikki Haley announced, with perceived conviction, that the move to halt funding to the Palestinian Authority and UNRWA, a wing of the United Nations set up to specifically deal with Palestinian refugees, will pressure the PA to engage in peace talks.
The question that is now being asked by many is; without funding, will the PA continue to see the value in embracing politics? And will they continue to comply with upholding security, in complience with the illegal Israeli occupation, all in the name of peace talks? This question is expected to be answered in the coming months and weeks.
