This year's ceremony took place underneath the fitting gloomy and rainy sky. 

Katherine Verrier-Frechette, the Canadian Representative to the Palestinian Authority, Archbishop Suheil Dawani and others spoke at the event attended by around 100 local representatives of various countries and organizations.

The USSC is responsible for training the Palestinian Security forces.
