The National Labor Committee in the Irbid refugee camp, along with the Department of Palestinian Affairs, staged a protest in front of the Irbid camp health center on Thursday, denouncing the halt in aid to UNRWA. Dozens of camp residents joined in, vehemently rejecting the brutal aggression against the people of Gaza.

This protest was part of a broader solidarity campaign aimed at supporting the Palestinian people and highlighting the challenging conditions faced by Palestinian refugees across various camps. Protesters displayed banners and slogans condemning the Israeli Occupation's aggression and advocating for the rights of Palestinians and the return of refugees to their homeland.

The demonstration reflects growing concerns over the cessation of aid to UNRWA, which plays a crucial role in providing essential services such as education, healthcare, and social relief to Palestinian refugees. This decision has had a detrimental impact on the daily lives of Palestinians, given the difficult and constrained circumstances.

Participants expressed hope that the international community and humanitarian organizations would pressure relevant parties to resume financial and humanitarian assistance to UNRWA, aiming to enhance living conditions in the camps and address the needs of Palestinian refugees.
