Sinn Féin Foyle MEP Martina Anderson has said her party will continue to work to build international solidarity in support of the Palestinian people.
Speaking from Palestine today on International Day of Solidarity with Palestine, Ms Anderson said;
“Sinn Féin continues to support the people of Palestine and is constantly working to build solidarity at home and internationally.
“Just this week I attended the Fatah congress in Palestine to show solidarity and welcomed the re-election of Mahmoud Abbas.
