World Food Program Cuts Food to Palestinians as Trump Admin Guts Aid

Jan 16, 2019

The World Food Program has cut aid to Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza, citing a critical lack of funds. The WFP said this week more than 25,000 Palestinians will no longer receive aid; a further 165,000 Palestinians will see their food aid slashed by 20 percent. Last year, the Trump administration eliminated more than a half-billion dollars in aid to the Palestinians; aid groups are warning further planned cuts threaten new projects including a playground for Gaza children and new infrastructure to provide clean water to Gaza homes.
