The delegation is to stay in Gaza for five days in order to give tens of scientific lectures in three of Gaza’s universities. The delegation’s visit is not only limited to giving astronomical lectures, but it is also considered the first scientific attempt to break the blockade imposed on Gaza since 2007.
Diwan Ghazza is a group of young activists in Gaza who are united and inspired by knowledge. The group organizes events and campaigns that aim at pumping positive energy and hope in Gaza. They have organized a lecture and an astronomical observation for the first time in Gaza.
Gazans believe the scientific delegation is a unique way to break the Israeli blockade, which imposes many restrictions on the educational and scientific development in Gaza.
An event called “Discover the Space” organized by the “Diwan Ghazza” organization is welcomed by all Gazans.
The Algerian delegation of scientists says the visit to Gaza aims to show solidarity with Gazans and to break the Israeli blockade.
