The World Food Programme (WFP) has suspended or reduced aid for some of its Palestinian beneficiaries in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip due to funding shortages, an official has said.
Some 27,000 Palestinians are no longer receiving aid through the United Nationsprogramme since January 1 in the occupied West Bank, said Stephen Kearney, the organisation's director for the Palestinian territories.
Another 165,000, including 110,000 in Gaza, are receiving 80 percent of the usual amount, he said on Sunday.
The cuts were decided upon after a gradual reduction in donations over the past nearly four years, with US cuts having the biggest effect.
In the Gaza Strip, around 80 percent of the two million residents rely on international aid.
The strip has been under an Israeli-Egyptian blockade for more than a decade. Israel has launched three military offensives on the territory since 2008.

Maqluba: upside down Palestinian rice is a brilliant dish for using up left over vegetables to create a hearty meal and beautiful centre piece.
Grilled vegetables, spiced rice and I like to add a herby tomato sauce, layered into a spring form pan, baked and then inverted onto a plate and served.
This traditional dish contains some lovely spices including cumin, coriander, ginger, turmeric and cinnamon to name a few.
I used aubergine, courgette, red pepper, onion and sweet potato but use what you prefer or have at hand.
Serve with a dairy free yogurt with fresh parsley, coriander and garlic mixed through.

"In 2018 illegal Israeli settlers carried out at least 482 attacks against Palestinians in the West Bank.
The Israeli occupation force facilitates this settler violence as a means to oppress the Palestinians, striking fear into the community and quelling resistance." - @christopher.smiley
