Gisha is an Israel-based NGO that calls itself the “legal center for freedom of movement” concentrating on the rights of Gazans and goods to go in and out of Gaza.
A group of 37 orphans from Gaza Strip were prevented from crossing into Israel Sunday after Hamas backtracked from a deal reached to allow the kids to tour the Jewish state, saying the tour was an attempt to “brainwash” the kids. The indicent took place amid claims of clashes along the border between the IDF and Palestinians.
The group, comprised of children aged 5 to 12 whose fathers were killed in the 50-day summer war between Hamas and Israel, were all ready to go at the border crossing with Israel when Hamas rescinded its initial agreement to the visit.
Wouldn’t this be right up Gisha’s alley – Gazans being denied the right to freely travel? Not to mention that they are orphans! How could Gisha miss this?
A look through their archives finds that it missed some other stories as well
