According to The Independent: He interviewed artist Majdal Nateel earlier this month and volunteered to take 399 of her paintings out of Gaza in his suitcase.

They will form part of a London show in P21 Gallery called Gaza on Gaza, featuring work by Palestinians based in the region responding to last year’s conflict.

“We were looking someone to carry it out and were worried that if we used a courier the Israelis would stop it,” said screenwriter Line Langebek, one of the show’s organisers.

Jon, who was out there, spontaneously offered to carry it. It’s fantastic to see them up on the wall in London now.

He has also been granted a fellowship by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA).

But when Jon Snow arrived in Gaza last Summer to report on Operation Protective Edge, he was moved like never before.

He remonstrated with Israeli spokesman Mark Regev live on-air, horrified by the 51-day attack in which Israel devastated civilian homes, schools, hospitals and even the power plant.

After seeing the humanitarian catastrophe on the ground himself, he was visibly shaken.I feel guilty in leaving, and for the first time in my reporting life, scarred, deeply scarred by what I have seen, some of it too terrible to put on the screen.

Leaving Israel and beleaguered Gaza far below me, I lay back in my BA seat headed for London. I donned my headphones and listened to Bach’s heavenly violin concerto in E major, and wept, as I rarely have as an adult.

On his return, he took the courageous decision to release a video plea to the nation to support the people of Gaza; an unprecedented step by a leading mainstream journalist in any western nation.
