Over 70% of Gaza's total population are "refugees"

“Director of UNRWA Operations in the Gaza Strip Robert Turner said that the refugees’ needs are increasing at a pace that exceeds the agency’s capabilities. He explained that UNRWA is suffering from a real financial deficit crisis due to the rise in the number of the beneficiaries of its programs in the Gaza Strip, and explained that the agency is responsible for providing services to the refugees in Gaza, who comprise over 70% of the total population, which totals 1.8 million.”
