The SS Dignity left the Gaza Strip on Saturday with the foreign sympathizers on board after four days of their arrival where they toured various installations in the beleaguered Strip and brought with them medical supplies to the Shifa hospital in Gaza city.

Thousands of Palestinians were at the dock to see the foreign activists off.

For his part, MP Jamal Al-Khudari, the head of the popular anti siege committee, said in a statement that the second sea voyage to the Strip had accomplished a number of targets including enhancing international solidarity with the Palestinian people and drawing the world"s attention to the accumulated dangers of the Israeli siege on Gaza.

The SS Dignity along with other ships played an important role in endorsing the use of Palestinian territorial waters to break the siege and paving the way before the inauguration of a sea route, he elaborated.

Khudari noted that three of the foreign activists would remain in Gaza to coordinate future anti-siege activities.
