Gaza: 'genocide' not too strong a word for Israeli actions says EU delegation member

An official European Parliament delegation has visited the Gaza Strip after the recent Israeli onslaught on the blockaded and besieged area, and says that Israel has committed genocide against defenceless Palestinians.

According to the PNN, a delegation including 13 members of the European Parliament, has called on the EU to break diplomatic ties with Israel and implement sanctions against Tel Aviv because of war crimes it has committed against the Palestinian people.

"I don't think it is too strong a word, not when you think of how genocide is described; it's described as the partial or the whole destruction of people; and what we are seeing happen in Gaza, in Palestine, is the destruction of Palestinians," Martina Anderson, an Irish member of the European Parliament, told Press TV.

The delegation, which has just returned to the Belgian capital of Brussels, from the Middle East, has also accused the West of turning a blind eye to Israel's crimes against Palestinians. more
