Trump Adminsitration Diverts $25 Aid from East Jerusalem Hospital Network for Palestinians

  • A US State Department official has reportedly said that the US President Donald Trump has ordered diversion of $25 million aid fund for the care of Palestinians in East Jerusalem Hospital Network to elsewhere. Reports say this move, announced on Saturday, is part of the ongoing US aid review to the Palestinians with respect to its own national interests so that the American government can provide value to the US taxpayers. It’s also learnt that those diverted funds will be utilized in more “high-priority projects elsewhere”.  The Palestinian Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying that diversion of the US assistance away from the Palestinians is an attempt of the Trump adminsitration “to liquidate the Palestinian cause”.
