Will Palestinians reject UAE aid?

From the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

Her Excellency Reem bint Ebrahim Al Hashimy, UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation, affirmed during her meeting with the Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), Philippe Lazzarini, that the UAE was one of the first countries to provide support to UNRWA.
Moreover, Her Excellency underscored that the UAE believes in the role that UNRWA plays in improving the lives of Palestinian refugees and stressed that the UAE’s long-standing, historic, and unwavering commitment to the Palestinian people contributes to maintaining regional security and stability. 
Between 2013 and 2020, the UAE provided Palestinians with more than US$840 million, $218 million of which was allocated to UNRWA, $166 million to the education sector, and $19 million to humanitarian assistance and social services-oriented programs in Gaza, the West Bank, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon.
The UAE is chairing the current session of the UNRWA Advisory Committee and aims to focus during its 2020-2021 presidency on key areas such as the digitization of education; empowering women, girls, and youth; and environmental sustainability.
It sounds like the UAE is continuing to fund UNRWA, and probably other Palestinian issues (although I doubt any more direct payments to the Palestinian Authority.) 
Will Palestinians accept this money now?
