MP Jamal Al-Khudari, the head of the popular anti siege committee, on Wednesday stressed that the ships trying to reach Gaza would continue to attempt to break the siege that is increasing in ferocity.

Khudari said in a press statement that a Qatari ship would arrive in Gaza within the few coming days along with a ship from Haifa carrying five tons of relief material and medical supplies from Palestinians in the 1948 occupied lands.

He said after phoning Rashid Al-Alawi, the director of the foreign offices of the Qatar charity foundation, that the Qatari ship would carry preliminary medical assistance to the tune of two million dollars.

The MP noted that a number of Qatari charity officials would be on board and would tour the Strip during the Eidul Al-Adha and would visit the projects financed by Qatar.

The union of Islamic parliamentarians also intends to send a relief ship to Gaza that would set sail from Larnaca, Cyprus on 18/12/2008 and a similar Jordanian vessel would leave Aqaba harbor two days later, he elaborated.

Kuwait and Yemen intend to send two other ships in January, Khudari said, and warned that the Strip was witnessing complete paralysis in various aspects of life due to the tightened siege.

For its part, the Iranian Red Crescent society announced that it would collect donations from the public following the Friday congregation that would be sent later to Gaza.
