Biden Partially Reverses Trump’s Total Aid Cut to Palestinians by restoring $200m.

Former US president Trump had gradually cut almost all US money earmarked for Palestinian aid projects.

The US announced it will restore more than $200m in aid to Palestinians, reversing massive funding cuts under the Trump administration that left humanitarian groups scrambling to keep people from plunging into poverty.

“[We] plan to restart US economic, development, and humanitarian assistance for the Palestinian people,” the secretary of state, Antony Blinken , said in a statement.
