Italy to resume UNRWA funding as Gaza faces humanitarian crisis
aljazeera.com

Italy has announced it will restore funding for the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) months after it suspended aid to the agency over Israeli allegations linking UN staff to the deadly October 7 attack.

Rome joins several Western donors in resuming aid after an independent review of UNRWA, led by French former foreign minister Catherine Colonna, found that Israel had not provided any evidence to back its claims.

Can we cut funding to Israel now? Claims of genocide aren't founded on bullshit.

Italy's far-right government has taken the honorable step of reinstating UNRWA funding, yet the UK and US are still sending thoughts and prayers (or maybe not even those).

That's good but they shouldn't have stopped it in the first place . Or at least resumed it much sooner since it was clear for a while that Israel's claims where bullshit
