UNRWA food distribution

Food distribution installations reopened in Gaza on Tuesday, this after the UN agency assisting Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) received assurances from relevant parties that its staff will be working in a safe environment.

UNRWA suspended its operations on Thursday following demonstrations sparked by a lack of funding for its cash assistance programme to 10,000 families in Gaza.

UNRWA media adviser Adnan Abu-Hasna says although food distribution has resumed, the situation is still evolving. He tells UN Radio's Beng Poblete-Enriquez that the agency is still in the middle of intensive discussions to ensure the safety of its staff.
