Children cancer patients demand an end to Gaza siege

GAZA, )– Palestinian children afflicted with cancer have called for lifting the Israeli siege on the Gaza strip which has been in place for almost four years now and to allow entry of necessary medical equipment into the Strip in addition to allowing them to travel abroad for treatment.

Children, staging a sit-in at the Gaza beach organized by the society for developing the Palestinian family, asked for international protection for the sea convoys heading to Gaza.

They hoisted slogans denouncing the Israeli measures against the aid ships and the continued threat to block their arrival to Gaza.
