Arab Parliamentary Union to visit the Gaza Strip

A delegation from the Arab Parliamentary Union (APU) is to visit the Gaza Strip which the government in Gaza believes will ā€œindicate the depth of genuine Arab solidarity with the Palestinian peopleā€. The decision to go ahead with the visit was made by the APUā€™s Executive Committee, which has authorised the Egyptian Parliament to make the necessary arrangements.

According to a statement released by the Governmental Committee for Receiving Delegations in Gaza, the proposed visit ā€“ following the lead taken by European parliamentarians who were in Gaza last week ā€“ will help to highlight further the suffering of Gazaā€™s 1.5 million people struggling under the immoral Israeli blockade for the past 3 years.
