One of the reasons why so many Palestinians are stuck where they are in Rafah is that they know that if they left Palestine the chances of them being able to return are virtually negligible.

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I thank the noble Lord, Lord Collins, for his comments. I feel a bit left out as the only person who has not been to Palestine or Israel. I was due to go on 7 October.

Defence ( 7 May 2024)

Julian Lewis: ...that seems to be abating.” That is still going on now. We heard reference to the Israeli soldiers recently killed in a Hamas artillery strike close to the one entrance where aid was coming into Palestine. Guess what happened?

We've heard about what happened at World Central Kitchen as well. Do you agree...
