The United States on Friday cut funding to a U.N. agency that supports Palestinian refugees, saying its business model and fiscal practices were an “irredeemably flawed operation.”

“The administration has carefully reviewed the issue and determined that the United States will not make additional contributions to UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency),” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement.

She said the agency’s “endlessly and exponentially expanding community of entitled beneficiaries is simply unsustainable and has been in crisis mode for many years.”

UNRWA says it provides services to about 5 million Palestinian refugees. Most are descendants from individuals who fled Palestine in the 1948 war that led to the creation of the state of Israel.

    “Do not kill us twice”, is a overkill.

    The descendants of the individuals who fled Palestine will suffer because of Trump’s policies.

    Trump is halts funding to for Palestinian refugees, as well as giving a blow to Pakistan.

    It is a heavy blow to new Premeir Khan when Trump cancels $300 million aid package to Pakistan over perceived terror ties.
    The Pentagon said it would no longer tolerate Pakistan’s “lack of actions” when it comes to dealing with militant groups. The latest decision to strip funds comes ahead of a high level visit to the country.
