Christian charity on Gaza: "lives are curtailed"

by Hannah Tooley

The Catholic charity CAFOD has been working in Gaza and the West Bank.

It stresses that the conflict between Israel and Palestine is complex and it does not expect to see an immediate solution, but also that progress is needed.

Mary Lucas, from CAFOD, told Premier they want to see "pressure on the British government, pressure on the European Union, to really play their role.

"I think the European Union have really quite a lot of influence over the situation in Israel."

"Materials coming in and out are controlled by Israel."
