The Trump administration is withholding $65 million of funding for the U.N. humanitarian agency for Palestinians, known as the U.N. Relief and Works Agency. U.N. officials say the slashed funding will devastate its humanitarian programs. This comes as the Israeli military attacked a funeral procession in the West Bank, opening fire on the mourners during clashes after the funeral. The funeral was for 24-year-old Ahmad Salim, who was killed by Israeli troops on Monday.
