The World Food Programme (WFP) has suspended or reduced aid for scores of its Palestinian beneficiaries in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip due to funding shortages.
Some 27,000 Palestinians are no longer receiving aid through the United Nations programme since January 1 in the occupied West Bank, said Stephen Kearney, the organization’s director for the Palestinian territories.
Another 165,000, including 110,000 in Gaza, are receiving 80 percent of the usual amount, he said on Sunday.
The cuts were decided upon after a gradual reduction in donations over the past nearly four years, with US cuts having the biggest effect.

The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (BCRI)’s decision to rescind an honor previously extended to Angela Davis is only the latest incident in a well-documented nationwide campaign to censor and punish critics of Israel.
Davis joins a long list of scholars and activists who have been censored, fired, de-funded, defamed, harassed and targeted with frivolous litigation because of concerted efforts by the Israeli government and anti-Palestinian organizations in the U.S. to silence debate. Marc Lamont Hill was not alone. Neither is Angela Davis.
US has had an 'Office of Antiboycott Compliance' since the 1970s to punish Americans that boycott Israel with up to a $1 million fine and 20 years imprisonment.(agency web page)
