Palestinian Authority Arabs on popular service committees in U.N.-run villages, commonly known as refugee camps, are shutting down UNRWA offices and programs in northern Samaria Wednesday and Thursday in protest of “systematic reductions” in services for residents, the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reported.
