Sweden plans to send an initial payment of 200 million kronor, with a total allocation of 400 million kronor for 2024.

Canada’s decision to restart funding acknowledges the ongoing investigative process.

The move comes amid a humanitarian crisis in Gaza, where a quarter of the population is at risk of famine.

UNRWA, a vital agency in Gaza, provides essential services, and other nations are also contributing to its funding.
