Israel supports gradual funding cut to United Nations agency for Palestinians

"In an extreme situation, the administration of those refugees could fall on Israel's shoulders". In February, UN Watch released an 130-page report exposing 40 UNRWA school employees in Gaza and elsewhere who engaged in incitement to terror against Israelis and expressed "anti-Semitism, including by posting Holocaust-denying videos and pictures celebrating Hitler".

UNRWA spokesman Sami Mushasha said in a statement that "what perpetuates the problem of Palestinian refugees is failure of the parties to deal with this issue, which should be resolved by the parties to conflict through peace negotiations based on United Nations resolutions and worldwide law as well as active involvement from the global community".

However, a senior United States administration official denied on Sunday that a decision has been made on cutting aid to UNRWA.

"It also perpetuates the right of return narrative in order to eliminate the state of Israel, therefore UNRWA must become a thing of the past", Netanyahu said.

Observers said UNRWA's support for Palestinian refugees actually helped Israel, by taking responsibility for the health, education and overall well-being of displaced Palestinians and their offspring.
