BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- The European Union (EU) has reportedly allocated over €14 million ($17,399,060) to support Palestinian projects in occupied East Jerusalem.

Official Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa news agency reported that the EU Commission has allocated over €14 million to support unspecified in East Jerusalem, a 40 percent increase from the previous amount.

The projects, according to Wafa, are intended to preserve “the Palestinian existence and identity in the holy city.”
