While visiting the site of Tom Hurndell's murder, no less!

Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Northover said the group was travelling under United Nations supervision in Rafah when they were shot at from an IDF observation post.

She said the gunfire passed closely over their heads.

They then pulled back to the vehicle clearly marked with the UN logo when further shots where fired at the building next to the car.

"If the Israeli Defence Force is prepared to shoot at a delegation of parliamentarians under the supervision of the UN, one wonders what treatment ordinary Palestinians are given," she added.

The IDF will swiftly investigate this, you may be sure! (their definition of "swift" is that of a turtle's, though)
