Hamas official in Lebanon Raafat Murra has warned against the dire consequences of scaling down the health services provided to Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.
In a press statement on Thursday, Murra said that UNRWA’s intended cuts will exacerbate the poor status of health services offered to refugees, further complicating the receding educational services and the established crises of poverty and unemployment.
Murra said that the decision points out an international decision to end UNRWA’s role by casting its responsibilities onto governments.
“By these decisions they intend to eliminate the refugees’ cause and open the door for settling Palestinians in host countries.” He opined.
