Open Letter to the President of the European Parliament – Denial of European Members of Parliament into Palestine by Israel’s Apartheid Regime and Your Trip to Israel

Dear President Metsola,
We, the undersigned organisations, strongly denounce Israeli authorities’ decision to deny entry to Gaza to a European Parliament delegation, and denial of entry to Palestine all together to the delegation chair, Manu Pineda, MEP, which compelled the entire delegation to cancel their vital trip.1 The six Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) were on an official mission as part of their mandate in the Delegation for Relations with palestine, to assess the situation in Palestine, specifically in Gaza, following the killing of Al-Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh by Israeli occupation forces.
