Mass displacement from Eastern Ghouta following military operations
By the Commissioner-General of UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, Pierre Krähenbühl
Local people call it “the checkpoint of death”. It is controlled by ISIS and for two years, 900 Palestine refugee students registered with UNRWA risked their lives to pass through it every day to get to school on the other side.

Today the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Monaco, his Excellency Gilles Tonelli, visited Beddawi camp in north Lebanon accompanied by the Director of UNRWA Affairs in Lebanon, Claudio Cordone.
During the visit, Monaco announced a new contribution to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) in support of the Agency’s Medical Hardship Fund (MHF).
Sitting at the front of the classroom, 11-year-old Tala Al-Masri, is bright-eyed and attentive as she pursues her dream of an education at the UNRWA Zaytoun Elementary Co-Ed B School in Gaza. In spite of being born with a severe visual impairment, leaving her with little light in her eyes, Tala's passion for learning has been clear since she was a child. "Tala is one of the most active and wonderful students in the school,” her school principal Itaf Adel Hadi describes her.
