An Italian group from different Italian cities visited Upper Galilee on 30 July 2015. The group was guided by Mrs. Betta and Mr. Norberto and they were 27 persons.

The group met Dr. Geries in Fassouta Village and he gave them a lecture on the Arab’s social, economic and political status in Israel and the difficulties and challenges which they face in their daily life.


After the lecture there was a session of question and answer. After this first meeting the group had lunch and soon they went to see the ruins of the Palestinian destroyed village among them was: Deir al-Qasi, al-Mansurah, Kufr Bir’am and Ikrit. Dr. Khoury accompanied them and told the group about the history of each village. After these visits the group left for Jerusalem.
