Australia will resume funding to the United Nations' main Palestinian relief agency, Foreign Minister Penny Wong said on Friday (March 15), almost two months after it paused ties over allegations some of the agency's employees participated in the Oct.7 Hamas attack.

She also appealed to Israel to allow more aid into Gaza, adding that it was a "prime consideration to recognise that we have children and families who are starving" there.
