For its part, the AGPS denounced these procedures, in a statement, as well as, it also condemned the continuous reduction of emergency aid to Palestinian refugees of Syria in Lebanon because of the consequent aggravation of their misery and suffering, and a threat to the social security, and their right to live in dignity.

The statement also called UNRWA for immediate undo this unjust decision against 43,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria in Lebanon, and to continue providing emergency shelter allowance and food aid to them until the end of their plight, and not to evade direct responsibility for the Palestinian refugees," calling international community to shoulder its responsibility towards the Palestinian refugee issue, and to fulfill its obligations toward them, and to take serious actions towards resolving the permanent disability problem in UNRWA fund in order to avoid repercussions on refugees.

The statement also called the Arab League and the Palestinian Authority to immediately intervene to prevent the implementation of this resolution, and to put pressure on UNRWA in order to undo this dicision."

 

Meanwhile, the AGPS called civil and popular society to take action against the austerity and the reduction policy followed by UNRWA against the right of Palestinian refugees."

In this regard, "Ahmed Hussein," the AGPS coordinator, stated that UNRWA's decision on the pretext of the lack of funding, does not absolve them of responsibility, and the stricken refugee should not pay the price of international donors evasion of their responsibilities, especially as we're talking about an international organization of the United Nations that has enough of solutions by its direct custody over the Palestinian refugees through UNRWA. "

Mr. "Hussein"  stressed that UNRWA is demanded to resume aid and even increase it under the harsh conditions experienced by the Palestinians inside and outside Syria, calling at the same time all official Palestinian bodies to take action and to bear  its natural functions towards what is happening."
