US may reject the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) practice of granting refugee status to descendants of Palestinian refugees.

Israel has for years demanded that the UN change its designation of Palestinian refugees, and that it use the same criteria it applies for other refugee populations worldwide. Humanitarian assistance to other refugee groups is overseen by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, which does not extend refugee status to descendants of original refugees.

The TV report quoted Israeli diplomatic sources who are aware of the new US thinking on the issue as saying that a Trump declaration rejecting the UN criteria for Palestinian refugees would represent “a tremendous victory” for Israeli diplomacy .

About time two. Many of these Palestinians are being denied basic rights and work in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan etc and being used as political pawns. In a poor attempt to destroy Israel. Its a joke how children of refugees can then be classes as such. When many of them fled a war the Arabs started.
