Headline: “Scores of protesters storm UNRWA offices in Gaza”
“Eyewitnesses noted that scores of refugees stormed UNRWA’s Gaza offices yesterday, [April 22, 2013] to protest the agency’s decision to halt financial aid to 100,000 refugees in the [Gaza] Strip and replace it with temporary jobs…
It should be noted that on April 1 this year, UNRWA ended its aid program that it had provided to 21,000 families, consisting of 100,000 refugees in the Gaza Strip, and replaced it with temporary jobs for a period of three months only, for approximately 10,000 of those families.”
