Khudari: Israel occupation disregards int’l appeals when it allows in 30 trucks
MP Jamal Al-Khudari, the head of the popular committee against the siege, considered Monday the Israel occupation intentions to open the Karem Abu Salem crossing in order to allow 30 trucks carrying aid and food supplies a disregard for international appeals.
MP Khudari expressed his refusal of dealing with Gaza as an area which needs nothing but aid provided from time to time, calling for the need to rapidly and fully open all Gaza crossings in order for Gaza to live in freedom.
The lawmaker noted that this relief aid is not sufficient, adding that Gaza needs more than 2000 trucks to cover the recent crisis caused by the closures.
The lawmaker also stressed the need for continuing the international pressure on Israel occupation to open the crossings and end the tragedy of Gaza.
The lawmaker pointed out that the IOA holds in custody Palestinian goods at its ports and force businessmen to pay taxes on them without allowing these goods into Gaza.
