The UN agency for Palestinian refugees says Israeli officials are hampering efforts to battle the coronavirus spread in occupied Jerusalem al-Quds and its refugee camps.

In an interview, United Nations Relief and Works Agency Spokesman, Sami Mosha’sha, said Israel is restricting movement in and out of the refugee population in the city. He added that the move prevents the UN agency and the Palestinian Health Ministry from providing health services to those in need. Mosha’sha noted that the measure is the latest in a series of restrictions imposed by Israeli authorities against the agency since US recognition of al-Quds as the Israeli capital in 2017. UNRWA is responsible for providing health, educational and social services to more than 5 million Palestinian refugees.
