BRUSSELS, -- The European campaign to end the siege on Gaza Strip has hailed the World Health Organization's (WHO) call on Israel to end its siege on Gaza immediately.

Mohammed Hanun, member of the campaign, said in a press release on Wednesday that the call is in need of international moves to bind Israel to end the suffering of more than one and a half million Palestinians in Gaza, recalling that WHO issued a similar decision a year ago.

The WHO decision was backed by 63 members and opposed by 51 topped by the USA.

Hanun said that WHO's call points to the tragic conditions in the Strip especially the patients who are in need of traveling abroad for treatment but could not due to the closure of all crossings at a time medicines and important medical equipment are barred from the Strip.

He urged the world community to assume its humanitarian responsibilities and adopt a daring decision that would practically end the oppression befalling those besieged Palestinians.

Hanun said that prolonging and tightening the siege only leads to more victims and entails catastrophic results, describing the siege as a slow, systematic killing of the enclave's inhabitants.
