VIENNA (WAM)

Austria will release funds to the UN’s Palestinian relief organisation UNRWA that were blocked after allegations agency staff were involved in the October 7 attacks on Israel.

Vienna’s decision comes after UNRWA set out an action plan to better ensure its impartiality, strengthen internal reviews, and improve how its staff are monitored.

“After a thorough analysis of the action plan, we will release funds to UNRWA again,” the Austrian foreign ministry said on Saturday.
