Israel committed genocide in Gaza: EU delegation

The delegation, which includes 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 the 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, Brussels, from the Middle East, has also accused the West of turning a blind eye to the Israeli crimes against Palestinians.

The politicians also accused Tel Aviv of continuing to break international law by engaging in land grabs to build settlements in Palestine
