After three consecutive weeks of protests in Palestinian refugee camps across Lebanon against modifications to the agency's health care program, the biggest protest yet was held near the U.N. headquarters in Beirut.Last Friday, hundreds of Palestinians blocked a vital road near the entrance to Beirut to protest aid cuts by the U.N. and the new applied hospitalization system that would reduce medical services for the refugees.There are about 400,000 Palestinian refugees in Lebanon spread out across 12 official refugee camps.Palestinians have warned of civil disobedience in all refugee camps if UNRWA fails to resume vital services critical to their livelihoods, including full medical coverage.
