European MPs visit Gaza and realise humans live there

At least some politicians in the West don’t regard the people of Gaza as toxic:

The largest delegation of European MPs will visit the besieged Gaza Strip, in Friday, to be updated with the conditions in Gaza after a year of the Israeli war which left thousands of victims.

“The European Campaign to End the Siege on Gaza,” said in a statement: “It has coordinated with the Egyptian Foreign Ministry concerning the visit of MPs delegation to Gaza via Rafah crossing between Egypt and Gaza.”

The delegation, which represent twelve European countries, members of the European Parliament and former ministers, has begun its preparations to deport to Egypt and then to Gaza Strip. Its aim is to convey the effects of both the war and the siege on Gaza Strip to their parliaments and peoples.

It is expected that the European MPs delegation will meet a number of Egyptian officials and the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States Amr Moussa, to discuss the humanitarian condition in Gaza Strip, especially in light of the continued siege which Israel has been imposing four years.

“The European Campaign to End the Siege on Gaza”, which organizes the delegation visit to Gaza said: “The main aim of this visit is to update the representatives of the European countries of the catastrophic circumstances which 1.5 million Palestinian lives in Gaza Strip.”
