U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Tuesday appeared to question the world body's count of Palestinian refugees, the latest in a series of steps by the Trump administration challenging how relief aid is delivered to the Palestinians.In remarks at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a Washington think tank often sympathetic to Israel, Haley agreed with a questioner who suggested that the U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNWRA), which helps Palestinian refugees, over counts their number.UNWRA says it provides services to about 5 million Palestinian refugees.On another emotionally charged issue, Haley also questioned the "right of return" to Israel, claimed by the Palestinians as part of any eventual peace settlement.
