Hamas urges UNRWA to resume food aid in the Gaza Strip

April 5, 2013 19:39

Hamas urged the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) on Friday to resume its food deliveries to Gaza, AFP reported.

The agency halted food aid to the Strip after demonstrators stormed its Gaza headquarters in protest of UNRWA's decision to suspend some of its cash handouts due to budget cuts."This is an unjustified step from UNRWA," Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri was quoted by AFP as saying. "There is a right of peaceful protest for Palestinian refugees."

"We call on UNRWA to reevaluate its position and not to overreact to residents' protest," he added.
