    TEL AVIV - The Assembly of Catholic Ordinaries of the Holy Land called on Israeli authorities to "allow, without further delay, Christians from Gaza to go to Bethlehem to celebrate Christmas".

    It said that if "all the world's people" are allowed to go for Christmas, "then Christians in Gaza also have a right to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ in his birthplace".

    It denounced the fact that thus far there hasn't been any clarification on the part of Israel.
