Saudi Arabia has contributed $25 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) through its embassy in the Jordanian capital Amman, local media reported.

In a statement, UNRWA said the contribution is part of a larger commitment pledged by the Kingdom to help the agency maintain the important services it provides to a total of 5.6 million Palestine refugees.

The United States was UNRWA’s top donor and funded about 30 per cent of its operations in the region. But it announced the suspension of its funding in 2018.
