Various Palestinian factions plan to stage a sit-in outside the ESCWA headquarters in Downtown Beirut Wednesday, on the eve of the U.N. chief's visit to Lebanon, to press for the rights of Palestinian refugees, including health care provided by the U.N. Relief and Works Agency.The leaders of Palestinian factions valued the efforts made by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas as well as Lebanese authorities to deal with the crisis caused by "UNRWA's repressive decisions, policies and measures," in order to achieve the demands of refugees, according to a statement issued after the meeting.In order to ease the crisis over its health care policy, which has sparked Palestinian protests since January, UNRWA confirmed Monday that it would suspend its new hospitalization protocols for one month to allow for a review of the policy.
