US Secretary of State Antony Blinken will visit the Middle East tomorrow, Sunday; in his fifth visit since the October 7 attack and the war in Gaza.

Blinken's visit to "Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Qatar, Israel and the West Bank; comes amid a worsening humanitarian crisis in Gaza where hundreds of thousands of people face potential famine."

According to the United Nations, more than a dozen donor countries, including the United States, have stopped funding UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees,after Israel accused 12 members of the organization of participating in the October 7 attacks.
