The United States has temporarily halted additional funding for UNRWA, the United Nations humanitarian agency that serves Palestinians, following allegations that some of its staff members participated in a Hamas attack on October 7. UNRWA has opened an investigation into the claims and has fired the employees accused. The U.S., the largest funder of UNRWA, has put its aid on hold previously under former President Trump. The Biden administration recently resumed funding and is now reviewing the allegations. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has emphasized the need for accountability for anyone involved in the attack.
