EU delegation visits Deir al-Balah desalination plant in Gaza
A delegation from the European Union visited a desalination plant in Gaza on Wednesday 24 November.
Twenty officials, made up of ambassadors and other country representatives, arrived in Gaza Strip through the Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing.
They were there to assess the living conditions of the people and inspect projects and installations funded by the EU in Gaza.
Mr Sven Kuhn Von Burgsdorff, the head of the European Union’s mission to the West Bank and Gaza Strip said the aim of the visit was to return Gaza to a path of sustainable recovery and development, which can be achieved when restrictions imposed by Israel on Gaza are eased.
