The Foreign Press Association is working to ensure the free passage of foreign media in and out of Gaza via the Erez Crossing as guaranteed by Israel's Supreme Court in 2009.
The FPA is alarmed by the ongoing delays which appear to be a direct violation of the landmark Supreme Court ruling of January 25, 2009 ruling in which the government undertook to allow the passage of foreign journalists through Erez at all times unless the crossing is completely closed for security reasons.
The Erez crossing is currently open for the passage of humanitarian officials and was opened yesterday for exiting journalists.
The FPA demands the immediate opening of the Erez crossing for the passage of accredited foreign journalists in both directions. The FPA calls on the Israeli authorities to halt this violation of the 2009 Supreme Court ruling.
