United States freezes payment to UN agency for Palestinian refugees

Palestinian protesters

PA President Mahmoud Abbas slammed Trump's declaration last month recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital, saying that the US could no longer be considered an unbiased broker in solving the conflict.

The Islamic State gave two reasons for the war declaration against Hamas: Hamas has cracked down on ISIS militant groups in Gaza, and Hamas failed to prevent the US from recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. "Trump's decision made us very keen to speed up the reconciliation process", he said.

On Sunday, a meeting of foreign ministers of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, United Arab Emirates and Morocco, in addition to Arab League Chief, supported the rights of the Palestinians in preserving their legal and historic rights in Jerusalem and in creating their independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Palestinian officials and other leaders in the Arab and Muslim worlds have said that the move essentially disqualified the US from brokering peace talks in the region.

One militant steps forward, saying: 'Never surrender to them. "There are still deliberations taking place, and we have until mid January to decide what we are going to do".

He also called on other countries which support Palestinians and oppose USA policies in the region to join them in the unified strategy.

Despite the current decision to restore power, pro-Palestinian Authority groups said the move fell short of Israel's responsibilities towards the enclave and would not relieve Israel of its "moral and legal responsibility" to ensure that Gaza's electricity needs are met. Some Palestinian officials call Trump's threat blackmail. On the other hand, in the West Bank, the occupation forces conducted 170 search operations and arrested 214 Palestinians, including at least 18 children, according to the OCHA report. A senior Israeli official told him that the "humanitarian situation in Gaza is complicated enough and harming UNRWA funding will only make it more complicated".

UNRWA provides services to 5.3 million Palestinian refugees in the Palestinian territories, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.
