Days of Palestine, Gaza Strip -Israel occupation authorities prevented on Monday Italian convoy led by Deputy Parliament Speaker Luigi de Mayo from entering Gaza Strip.
Italy’s Five Star Movement said the Italian Embassy in Israel informed De Mayo and parliamentarians Manlio Di Stefano and Ornella Bertorauta that the Israeli government would not allow them to cross into the Gaza Strip to visit the Italian projects in Gaza, a statement said.
The group of Italian parliamentarians would have visited humanitarian projects funded and supported by Italian people and bodies.
De Mayo said that Israel’s decision is an indicator of the “negative policies” adopted by Tel-Aviv and their effects on the peace process.
The Israeli Embassy in Rome said permits to enter the Gaza Strip are subject to special security considerations.
