 A delegation of legislators and political advisors from Australia toured the Gaza perimeter to learn first-hand about life on the border and to hear about different projects promoted by KKL-JNF for the benefit of frontline residents. They were joined by representatives from the USA and the UK.

“Our aim is to become acquainted with life in Israel as it really is, not as it is depicted in the news,” said Josh Koonin from Sydney, the leader of the group, who had initiated the trip to Israel. The delegation is traveling all over Israel for ten days and, according to Koonin, the tour of the Gaza perimeter is an important part of their itinerary, so that they can truly understand the reality there.
