Gaza orphans demonstrate against siege as congressman enters the Strip
GAZA, — Tens of Gaza orphans demonstrated in Gaza city on Saturday to demand an end to the Israeli siege that has been suffocating the coastal strip for more than three years.
The children were holding signs affirming their right to a dignified life. They also asked for their rights of compensation for their family deprivation.
The children asked for Arab official backing and for establishment of charitable societies to cater for them.
Meanwhile, an American congressman arrived in Gaza afternoon Saturday through the Rafah border crossing with Egypt.
The itinerary of Keith Ellison, an environmentalist, was not known.
