A high-level delegation of the European campaign for ending the siege is expected to meet on Wednesday with Javier Solana, the European Union (EU)  high representative for the common foreign and security policy, to explore ways of lifting the Israeli blockade imposed on impoverished Gaza people.

 

Dr. Arafat Abu Madi, the head of the campaign, said Tuesday that the delegation would include former British minister of international development Clare Short, member of the British house of lords Jenny Tonge, Scottish lawmaker Pauline McNeill, vice president of the European parliament Luisa Morgantini and member of the European parliament Chris Davis.

 

Dr. Abu Madi also said that the delegation would ask Solana to actively move to end the Israeli siege imposed on the Palestinians in Gaza and to pressure Israel to release the lawmakers imprisoned in its jails.

 

The Brussels-based European campaign had worked during the past few months on sending several European parliamentary delegations to Gaza in addition to the humanitarian hope convoy.

 

It is also in constant contact with European officials and lawmakers to keep them informed about the humanitarian situation in Gaza.
