Don’t punish UNRWA for alleged actions of 12 workers: Jordan FM

LONDON: The international community should continue to support UNRWA in its efforts to provide vital aid to Palestinians in Gaza regardless of the allegations made against some of its workers, Jordan’s Foreign Minister said.

According to the Jordan News Agency, Ayman Safadi said in a telephone call to Philippe Lazzarini, commissioner-general of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, that the organization should not be subjected to collective punishment because of the claims made against 12 of its 13,000 staff members in Gaza.
