Austria freezes funds to UNRWA

Austria’s Foreign Ministry says it is suspending payments to UNRWA, Reuters reports.

On Friday, Vienna said allegations that UNRWA workers participated in the October 7 attacks were “shocking and alarming,” calling for the agency to take immediate action to investigate the charges.

Austria donated some $8 million to UNRWA in 2022, making it the 22nd largest funder of the agency for Palestinian refugees.
