Bahar: All conspiracies aimed to blackmail Gaza people will fail

 GAZA, — Dr. Ahmed Bahar, the first deputy speaker of the Palestinian legislative council (PLC), stressed Wednesday that all conspiracies that are aimed to undermine the steadfastness of Gaza people and blackmail them into making concessions would fail.

During the opening ceremony of Besan city in northern Gaza Strip, Dr. Bahar said that the blockade, the military aggression and the steel wall being built to starve the Gaza people and kill them would not succeed in forcing them to give up their steadfastness and their rights regardless of the sacrifices.

In a speech, the deputy speaker questioned whether Gaza is really a threat to Egypt’s national security, emphasizing that the real threat to Egypt is Israel which uses Sinai airspace to hit Gaza tunnels.

For his part, Dr. Mohamed Al-Agha, the Palestinian minister of agriculture, affirmed the government’s insistence on making achievements and entrench the Palestinian presence despite the blockade and aggression.

Dr. Agha highlighted some of the major projects which his ministry planned to develop in order to achieve food security including the opening of the largest palm nursery in Palestine in addition to the cultivation of a quarter million seedlings of various nuts such as apricots and almonds.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, Dr. Bahar along with Dr. Agha and interior minister Fathi Hammad cut the ribbon and planted a group of saplings to mark the opening of the city.
