UN agency for Palestinian refugees faces financial crisis

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “UN agency for Palestinian refugees faces financial crisis” – below is their description.

The UN agency in charge of Palestinian refugees says it is facing a financial crisis. But it dismissed concerns that increasing partnerships with other UN agencies will lead to the dismantling of the organization.

Palestinian refugees as well as Arab countries hosting them have been concerned that transferring the agency’s work and services to others ultimately targets the refugees’ right to return.
