Hamas calls on WFP to reverse food cuts decision



The Hamas Movement rejects the justifications of the UN World Food Program to cut food services offered to the impoverished Palestinian refugees in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

The reduced services are expected to inflict horrific outcomes on hundreds of thousands of the Palestinian people who depend on the food assistance provided by WFP as their sole livelihood.

The WFP’s services are extremely necessary, especially during the recurrent situation, as the Palestinian people have been experiencing difficult humanitarian conditions resulted from the 12-year Israeli siege on Gaza and suffocating Israeli policies.

Therefore, Hamas calls on the WFP to reverse its cuts and to do its best to cover its declining donation.

We also urge the international community and donors to provide immediate support for the WFP which provides critical services for the impoverished Palestinian refugees.
