The Biden administration announced yesterday that it would restore hundreds of millions of dollars in American aid to UNRWA, the aid agency that provides economic and development assistance in the West Bank and Gaza. It is the strongest move yet to reverse President Trump’s policy on the protracted Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Host Carol Hills speaks with Hussein Ibish, a senior resident scholar at The Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington, about how the aid would be used and what this resumption of aid means for US-Palestinian relations going forward.
