Israel and Palestine: Gaza

Volume 684: debated on Tuesday 25 July 2006

asked Her Majesty’s Government:

Whether they will make representations to the Government of Israel to open the Rafah crossing point sufficiently to allow inhabitants of Gaza, now stranded in Egypt, to return home. [HL7034]

The Rafah crossing point opened on 18 July to allow people to pass from Egypt into Gaza. It is important that both parties implement the 15 November 2005 agreement on movement and access. We will continue to make representations about this.
