The AGPS condemnes  the systematic policy of the UNRWA towards the Palestinian refugees weather those of Lebanon or who were displaced from Syria, and inveighed the cuts of aid and other services, the health services in particular.

The AGPS has been following closely the policies of the United Nations Relief and Work Agency for the Palestinian Refugees, of the gradual reduction of relief aid specifically, weather of the Palestinian-Lebanese or Palestinian-Syrians, which started by the cut of financial and food aid of 1100 families, and stopping the housing benefit of Palestinian-Syrians in Lebanon, and reduced the services of education sector and recently the health sector which affected all the Palestinians in Lebanon.

The AGPS condemns this unfair policy which does not take into account the harsh living and social conditions of refugees who already suffer from marginalization and deprivation of social rights, and the right to work in particular.

The AGPS warnes of harming the refugees' rights which are stated in the resolution of establishing the UNRWA, and called for the continuation of its work, considering it as "an international major witness of the Palestinian Nakba".

The AGPS held the UNRWA full responsibility regarding the deterioration of health and social conditions of refugees as a result of such decisions. The AGPS demanded to relief the needy Palestinians in Lebanon quickly and keep up until they return back to their home land in Palestine.
