UN agency a ‘ray of light’ for Palestinian refugees, says Guterres

Amman (AFP) – United Nations chief Antonio Guterres defends the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA, describing it as the “one ray of light for millions of people” during a press conference as he visits the Wihdat refugee camp in the Jordanian capital Amman. His remarks come as the agency faces a financing crisis after several key donor countries cut off funding following Israeli accusations that several UNRWA staff in Gaza were involved in the October 7 Hamas attack.
