France and Estonia Withdraw UNRWA Support Amid UNRWA-Hamas Connections Post-October 7th Attacks

Jan 28, 2024

France and Estonia have cut their financial contributions to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). This decision reflects a growing trend among nations reassessing their support to Palestinian organizations after finding out their connections to Hamas after the October 7th attacks.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) has faced allegations and concerns about connections to Hamas, a group designated as a terrorist organization by several countries, including the United States and the European Union. These concerns center around the proof that Hamas members are being employed by UNRWA or using UNRWA facilities for activities related to Hamas.
