Israeli Arabs in Solidarity Visit to Sderot, Gaza Area

A delegation of representatives from Israel's Arab sector, headed by Labor Knesset candidate Fatchi Amara, are scheduled to visit Sderot and other Gaza-envelope communities to give strength to area residents. While in Sderot, they are scheduled to meet with Mayor David Buskila.

In announcing the visit, Amara said, "the reality of the lives of the residents of Sderot and Gaza is intolerable and it is important for us to relay the message that the vast majority of Israeli Arabs support them and sympathize with them. We're traveling to talk to the residents of southern Israel as Israeli citizens to Israeli citizens, to strengthen them, in our name and on behalf of the Arab-Israeli public, and to tell them we are with them and that we all hope that the right thing will be done to stop the continued fighting and bring peace to the area."
