The German government says it is supplying €45 million ($48.7 million) to UNRWA, United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East. Several months ago, Berlin suspended aid to UNRWA due to the involvement of its employees in Hamas attacks on Israel.

Twenty-two million euros will come from the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development budget. Fifteen million euros will be allocated to the healthcare and education systems of refugees in Lebanon and Jordan, while seven million will go to an ongoing employment program in Lebanon.

The Federal Foreign Office of Germany will provide 23 million euros. The funds will be used to support the needs of refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria, as well as to pay for food for Arab residents of the West Bank.

UNRWA won't receive funding for the Gaza Strip because its local employees took part in the October 7 attack on Israel. At the same time, the resumption of funding will allow the agency to allocate funds for the needs of Gaza.
