UAE donates $70 million to support Palestinians
Abu Dhabi, April 23 (IANS/WAM) The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has donated AED 258 million ($70 million) to support the Palestinian people on the directives of President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The two-part aid -- the first valued at AED 74 million ($20 million) -- will be allocated to the Islamic Waqf Support Programme in Jerusalem to preserve the Arab-Islamic identity of the city.
The second, valued at AE 184 million ($50 million) will be dedicated to the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees to support the educational sector in Gaza.
The assistance followed the Jerusalem summit in Dhahran, which represented the unified Arab stance in support of the Palestinian people.
Over the last five years (2012-2017) the UAE has given AED 6.17 billion ($1.68 billion) in assistance towards the cause.
