RIYADH: Saudi aid agency KSrelief announced on Wednesday it will donate $40 million to UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, to support its emergency appeal in the Gaza Strip.

The financial support memorandum was signed by Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah, general supervisor of the center, and Philippe Lazzarini, UNRWA commissioner-general, via video call.

The agreement will help support food security for Palestinians in the besieged territory, where the Israel-Hamas war has raged for more than five months, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
