Malaysian PM to visit Gaza on Tuesday: aide
An aide to the Malaysian prime minister said on Sunday that Foreign Minister Anifah Aman and other high-ranking officials will also accompany Najib on the one-day visit, AFP reported.
The aide, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to journalists, did not provide details of the visit or its purpose.
However, he said that an official statement would be issued on Monday.
In November 2012, an eight-day Israeli offensive in Gaza killed about 170 Palestinians, including many women and children, and injured over 1,400 others.
A ceasefire agreement, which took effect on November 21, ended the Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip, which has been blockaded since June 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.
During the offensive in Gaza, the Malaysian prime minister called on international powers to influence Israel to halt Israeli aggression against the Palestinians.
The apartheid regime of Israel denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education
