Khudari: Israel’s threat to target anti-siege ships reflects its weakness
GAZA, — MP Jamal Al-Khudari, the head of the popular committee against the siege, stated Sunday that Israel’s threat to bomb the anti-blockade ships coming to the Gaza Strip later this month is not a sign of strength, but rather it reflect its weakness.
Khudari added that Israel is practicing state terrorism against non-violent people who intend to support impoverished civilians living under blockade and aggression.
He stressed that Israel violated the international law when it threatened to target these civilian ships, noting that Israel fears that the activists participating in this aid convoy would reveal the true image of the humanitarian situation in besieged Gaza.
The lawmaker affirmed that the organizers of the convoy will not succumb to Israel’s threats and will sail for Gaza on schedule.
The international anti-siege coalition, that organizes this convoy, is composed of the Free Gaza movement, the Turkish relief foundation IHH, and Malaysian and European organizations.
