UNRWA removes Palestine map, Jerusalem images from school books

Jordanian MPs said that the United Nations Relief Works Agency (UNRWA) had removed a map of Palestine and images of Jerusalem images from its schools in Jordan. The MPs sent a letter to the Jordanian government to deal with the “violations” of the UNRWA’s Operation Director David Roger, noting that the “violations” defame Palestinian identity. They also called for the Jordanian government to take action against the UNRWA’s systematic reduction of its services for Palestinian refugees. UNRWA’s “violations” regarding Palestine and Jerusalem do not only harm Palestinians, but Jordanians too.

UNRWA statistics show that there are about 1.25 million Palestinian refugees in Jordan, including 373,000 living in refugee camps and the others live in the different Jordanian cities and towns.
