“The organization’s “unendingly and exponentially growing network of entitled recipients is basically unsustainable and has been in emergency mode for a long time,” she said.

“We gives administrations to in regards to 5 million Palestinian displaced people. Most are relatives from people who fled Palestine in the 1948 war that prompted the production of the territory of Israel,” UNRWA said.
