Farouq: Egypt keeps quiet when it comes to Israeli crimes and takes actions to punish Palestinians

MP Dr. Hazem Farouk, member of the MB Parliamentary bloc and member of the Foreign Relations Committee in the Parliament, called on Egyptian authorities to terminate the building of an iron barrier on the border with the Gaza Strip.

In a press release, an Egyptian official stressed that some work was in fact taking place on the eastern borders of Egypt “to strengthen the security of the area”. He claimed that this would ensure that residents of the Gaza Strip would not enter Egyptian lands similar to incidents in January 2008 which had resulted in huge chaos.

The source also added  that “devices were set up to monitor subways” which are being built between the occupied Gaza Strip and Egypt for the purpose of smuggling goods as claimed by citizens and weapons as claimed by officials.

In a press release to the website parliament.com  Farouk asserted “That without doubt Egypt’s national security is a top priority for all Egyptians however building borders serves no particular individual but rather increases the burden on our brothers in Palestine by closing all doors”.

 

The Government must try to help save thousands of besieged Palestinian families”, He highlighted that Egypt’s regime is fully aware that this fence will only benefit the Israeli occupation’s entity.

The MP questioned the Egyptian government’s tilting of scales where efforts are made   to prevent Palestinians from entering the country whereas passiveness is eminent while dealing with Israeli snipers who have in fact killed a large number of Egyptian citizens on the borders.

He also called on Egyptian authorities to prioritize their efforts in securing the wasted waters of the Nile due to Israeli arrangements in the region rather than seek out and close off Palestinian subways.


 Eye witnesses and competent security experts stressed that Egyptian authorities have in fact initiated the establishment of an iron barrier on the border with the Gaza Strip. This fence would not be seen clearly since it is placed 18 metres under the surface of the ground.  

 

US experts who are supervising its establishment have preferred to claim that they are protecting the subways by monitoring it and placing electronic sensors planted beneath the surface.
