The European campaign to lift the siege said Friday that it is making preparations to send a big multinational parliamentary delegation soon to the besieged Gaza Strip by sea after the Egyptian authorities barred it from entering the Strip through the Rafah border crossing.

Dr. Mohamed Hanoun, the head of the Palestinian assembly in Italy and a founding member of the European campaign, added that the boat will be boarded by European lawmakers and media crews.

Dr. Hanoun underlined that there is tremendous determination by the European lawmakers to reach Gaza by sea to break the siege despite the risks associated with such a trip.

He pointed out that the lawmakers will visit health and education sectors to be closely familiar with the impacts of the Israeli siege on all aspects of life in Gaza and will provide their parliaments with reports about the size of suffering there in order to pressure their governments and hold them accountable for their role in lifting the blockade.

For his part, Nazir Ahmed, a member of the British house of lords and the head of the parliamentary delegation, underscored that the unjust siege imposed on Gaza for the third consecutive year calls for the necessity of playing a humanitarian and moral role to break it.

Ahmed noted that this move is taken in the context of pressuring the European governments through their lawmakers to lift the siege on Gaza.

In a press release received by the PIC, MP Jamal Al-Khudari, the head of the popular committee to break the siege, strongly denounced the decision taken by the Israeli war minister to close the commercial crossings which were partially operated.

MP Khudari pointed that 15 percent of Gaza needs were allowed in by Israel through the Karam Abu Salem crossings, adding that the Gaza markets are suffering from severe shortage of essential items.
