GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinian refugees protested in front of the Unied Nations' headquarters in esieged Gaza City, on Wednesday, in rejection of the United States President Donald Trump’s speech and US decisions affecting the United Nations Relief and Work Agency (UNRWA.)

This protest comes under the slogan "no to jeopardizing the rights of refugees" in time with the UN General Assembly convening, to affirm the right of refugees to return and live decently and in persistence to their just demands under all of their legitimate rights.

Kayid Jarbou, a youth activist, stressed on Palestinians' rejection of their rights being jeopardized, pointing out that the silence of the UN and the international community on Israeli "crimes" and US-international decisions against the people cannot be accepted.

Jarbou described Trump's speech as "abuse," saying that it confirms US decisions to liquidate the case and not recognizing all international resolutions and that it adopts a vision that is considered a crime against the people and the international community.

Protesters raised signs condemning the sanctions on UNRWA services.

For her part, protester Suad Musleh called upon President Donald Trump to allow the return of refugees to their homes and compensate them before ending UNRWA's services in accordance with Resolution 194, which calls for the return of refugees to their homes.

Musleh also called upon Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to confirm the right of return and compensate refugees during his speech to the UNGA.
