a sister about five million palestinian refugees in jordan lebanon syria the west bank and gaza the u.s. has been the agency's largest donor a spokesman for the palestinian president called the move an assault against his people germany has pledged to increase its funding in response. but a spokesman for the un agency facing funding cuts is also commented on the decision calling it deeply regrettable he rejected u.s. criticism that the agency was inefficient and had failed to make reforms we reject in the strongest possible terms just a few months ago the us administration was praising institutional reform we've been conducting a root and branch efficiency reform which saved tens of millions for donors and the u.s. was among those donor governments praising us so it's hard to know where this is coming from except perhaps you should be asking the trumpet but ministration whether or not they are actually politically instrument lives. of more on this
let's bring in our correspondent tanya came in jerusalem to tell you we've heard now that response from annorah how have palestinians reacted. well i mean there is a sense among palestinians that this could be a political move because it has opened up speculations about the real intentions off the u.s. administrations the house being a debate ongoing here whether they will also try to redefine use of refugees and to reassess the right of return which is so fundamental to many cars stimulants in acknowledging what happens to them in ninety forty eight when israel was created so i wasn't of them had to flee and subsequently. created the relationship between the palestinian leadership in ramallah and u.s. administration is present time has been very tense ever since the decision by the u.s. administration to move the u.s. embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem and well across the board at the happening on

a financial crisis now the agency has tried over the past couple of months to get more support from other countries germany has announced on friday that they will that they're prepared to give more support calling also other nations still to see whether that can fill this gap but obviously on my actually bring services if you look for example to gaza to the gaza strip you know it's run school stead the school has started it's unclear whether the schools can continue for the rest of the year. providing food assistance to. the health. system so it's creates a deep anxiety and also uncertainty for a lot of refugees not just in garceau the occupied west bank but also across the region as you said i mean what's taking care of over five million. refugees in lebanon syria and jordan a reporter tanya came in jerusalem thank you very much indeed.
