UNRWA: Palestinians are shocked by the alleged US peace plan

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) said on Friday that Palestinians are shocked by the alleged US “peace plan”.

This came in the words of the Commissioner-General of the Agency, Christian Saunders, in a press conference held by the United Nations Office in Geneva, Switzerland, on the needs and aspirations of the Agency for 2020.

Saunders stressed that the United Nations stands with the two-state solution, expressing his belief that any peace plan must be subject to negotiation by all parties concerned.

He added that many Palestinians are shocked and do not trust the (American) plan.

He stressed that UNRWA’s role is to provide education, health, humanitarian assistance, protection and social services to Palestinian refugees until a just and lasting solution is reached.

He called on the international community to provide 1.4 billion dollars in aid to meet the humanitarian needs of 5.6 million Palestinians throughout the Middle East.

On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump announced the outlines of the alleged deal, in the presence of the outgoing Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, while the Palestinian Authority and resistance factions rejected it.

The 80-page plan includes the establishment of a Palestinian state in the form of an “archipelago” connected by bridges and tunnels with no airport or seaport, while making occupied Jerusalem the alleged unified capital of Israel.
