US announces another $100 million in aid for Palestinians

The United States announces that it is providing $100 million in additional aid for Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

A statement from USAID says the funding will assist the United Nations’ World Food Program. It also says that through the funding, it will provide “logistics support for the safe and efficient delivery of lifesaving humanitarian aid across Gaza,” without elaborating. Aid agencies have complained that goods are not reaching people in Gaza because of the dangerous security situation and growing lawlessness that is complicating aid delivery.

A statement from the US aid agency says the additional funding brings US contributions to the Palestinians since the war began to more than $774 million.
