The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) will continue to provide assistance to Palestinian refugees without regard to the new Hamas-led Palestinian Authority government. In a press conference in Gaza City Tuesday, UNRWA director Karin Abu-Zaid said that she had not received any instructions to cease cooperation with Hamas officials in the PA, Israel Radio reported. Abu Zaid said that the agency would work as usual with the Hamas government to find a solution to the Palestinians' humanitarian needs. On Tuesday, a UN spokesman in New York said that official contact with the Hamas government would be approved as necessary.
