Catherine Ashton the EU foreign policy chief visited the Gaza Strip on Thursday and said the EU heavily supports changing the humanitarian situation there, the Middle East Monitor reported.

Ashston said at a press conference she chose to visit Gaza on World Refugee Day in order "to highlight the humanitarian suffering here."
