The European Union's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said on Sunday that cutting funds to UNRWA would put hundreds of thousands of lives at risk and could be considered collective punishment, Reuters reported.

"Defunding UNRWA would be both disproportionate and dangerous," Borrell wrote in a blog post.

"The wrongdoing of individuals should never lead to the collective punishment of an entire population," he added.
