Two EPDP Central Council members, Ms Feven Gideon and Mr. Tuku Tesfai, arrived in Tel Aviv, Israel, on 31 March 2018 on a timely mission to meet and discuss the problems of 27,000 Eritrean asylum seekers stranded in Israel.
The EPDP leadership members were warmly received at Tel Aviv airport by compatriots welcoming them with bouquets of flowers.
The two-fold mission of the delegation is, besides expressing solidarity with the Eritrean asylum seekers faced with inhumane expulsion from Israel, to also address meetings with Eritreans on the current situation of Eritrea and its opposition camp struggling for democratic change.
During its stay in the country, the EPDP delegation will make efforts to discuss pertinent issues with civil society organizations and others concerned with problems of refugees. (www.harnnet.org will continue updates on the mission's upcoming performances).
