“The money should be allocated to special programmes and projects in addition to covering emergency operations in Palestine and Syria,” he told Lebanon’s Al-Markazia news agency.
Mshasha added that in spite of the deficit that the agency suffered from, it had been capable of compensating for the shortage of funding offered by the U.S.
The U.S. said in 2018 that it would no longer contribute to the UNRWA, calling the agency an “irredeemably flawed operation”.
It criticised other countries for not sharing the burden of supporting Palestinians.
This has prompted other donor countries to increase their support for the agency.
