    Palestinian refugee crisis


    by PressTV

    Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah praised the role of the United Nations, especially its Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) for their consistent commitment to provide assistance, relief and protection for Palestinian refugees, Palestinian Government Media Center said in a press release Friday, 27 September 2013.

    He also stressed on the fact that the issue of refugees is one of the highest priorities of the Palestinian leadership and key issues for a settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the achievement of a lasting and complete peace in the region.

    In this edition of the show we debate whether this claim is true or not and how the UNRWA continues to help the Palestinian refugees. We also take a look at how the international community is helping with the short term financial and humanitarian needs of the refugees and whether they could do more.
