UNRWA says its schools for Palestinian refugees to open on time despite US funding cut

GAZA, (DRAH.ps)--  The United Nations agency dealing with Palestinian refugees said on Thursday it would open its schools in the Middle East as scheduled this month despite a deficit caused by a U.S. funding cut.

In a statement, UNRWA said half a million students will return to the 711 schools on time "because it is crucial to protect the fundamental right to education for Palestinian refugee girls and boys".
