Since the outbreak of renewed hostilities in Gaza in July 2014, the situation of people living in this highly populated area has worsened sharply.

The conflict is being reported in unprecedented detail in the world’s media, and social media are playing a big role in highlighting the suffering of ordinary people.

In Ireland, several NGOs and social justice organisations have spoken out, calling for a cessation of hostilities, for humanitarian support  and for full adherence to international human rights and humanitarian law by both Palestinians and Israelis.
