Eleven academics from Oxford University have been visiting the Gaza Strip this week to attend a medical conference at the Islamic University of Gaza, where the delegation also gave lectures to medical students.

President of the IUG, Jamal Al-Khoudari, MP, welcomed the visit saying "our visitors have been able to see for themselves the effects of the siege of the Gaza Strip," before adding "they are keen to help our education sector to develop even further."

Professor David Cranston, a senior clinical lecturer at the Nuffield Department of Surgery at the University of Oxford, was among the delegation that spoke at the university, which had had its laboratories bombed during a 2008-2009 air raid by the Israelis.
