The Federal Council releases 10 million to UNRWA for Palestinian civilians in Gaza

With the offensive of the Israeli army in the town of Rafah, the humanitarian situation of civilians in the Palestinian territory of Gaza is worsening, after months of war which have already caused some 34,000 deaths on the Palestinian side and 1,200 on the Israeli side. The Federal Council ended up taking this into account. This Wednesday, and after weeks of vagueness, he released part of the funds usually reserved for UNRWA, the UN agency which deals with Palestinian refugees. The amount in question, however, only amounts to 10 million francs, while Berne transferred 20 million last year.
