"We urge the US administration to reconsider its decision to withhold $65 million in funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestinian refugees. This amount represents over half the initial tranche of $125 million that would normally have been provided to UNRWA at the beginning of the year. The move will have devastating consequences for vulnerable Palestinian refugees across the Middle East, including hundreds of thousands of refugee children in the West Bank and Gaza, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria who depend on the agency for their education.

Seventeen aid agencies working in Yemen are urging for the complete and unconditional opening of Hudaydah port to allow for the uninterrupted flow of food and fuel. A thirty-day concession period enabling the delivery of commercial supplies has brought only brief reprieve within the context of a sustained blockade on Yemen’s Red Sea Ports. Parties to Yemen’s conflict have a responsibility to minimise the impact of war on civilians in Yemen by mitigating all factors that exacerbate death and suffering, as over 8 million people are already on the verge of starvation.

On 19 January, the 30-day period set by the Saudi-led coalition in which blockade measures were eased, will expire.

As attacks restart just hours after the ceasefire between the Government of Colombia and the ELN armed group expires overnight, it’s vital both sides show return to the negotiation table, warns the Norwegian Refugee Council. "The latest attacks demonstrate that peace negotiations must be accelerated to end this brutal conflict. It’s crucial that dialogue continues to de-escalate the fighting, so that thousands of people are no longer displaced from their homes and civilians killed,” warned NRC’s Country Director in Colombia Christian Visnes.

The US administration's threat to cut its funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestinian refugees would have disastrous consequences if carried out, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) warned today. It would punish hundreds of thousands of Palestinian children in the West Bank and Gaza, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria, who depend on the agency for their education. It would deny their parents the only social safety net that helps them to survive under occupation, or in displacement.
