US envoy to UN calls for ‘fundamental changes’ to UNRWA before funding resumes

UNITED NATIONS — The US envoy to the United Nations says that Washington needs to see “fundamental changes” before its funding to UNRWA can resume following Israeli allegations that some agency staff were involved in the October 7 attack by Palestinian Islamist terror group Hamas.

Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the US Ambassador to the UN, welcomes the UN’s decision to conduct an investigation and review of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East.

She says: “We need to look at the organization, how it operates in Gaza, how they manage their staff and to ensure that people who commit criminal acts, such as these 12 individuals, are held accountable immediately so that UNRWA can continue the essential work that it’s doing.”
