Palestinian factions in Lebanon made several proposals Thursday to help the United Nations Relief and Works Agency overcome its severe financial problems, highlighting the dangers the crisis posed on Palestinian refugees. Ali Barakeh, the representative of Hamas in Lebanon, presented the views of the Palestinian Forces Alliance, a conglomeration of 10 political factions, on how to face the UNRWA crisis. He proposed a diplomatic strategy to spur friendly nations to stanch the agency's deterioration, and a national strategy to push the principle of the right of return on UNRWA and host and donor countries. He also called on the agency to register undocumented Palestinians, expand the camps, and broaden its donor base.
