The IOF troops besieging the Gaza Strip have refused to allow the entry of a shipment of medicine and other medical supplies, collected by1948 Arabs, into the Strip.
Dozens of Arab sympathizers, including current and former MPs in the Israeli parliament, accompanied the shipment that was blocked at the Erez (Beit Hanun) crossing north of Gaza on Wednesday.
The marchers hoisted the Palestinian flags and slogans denouncing the siege on Gaza, describing it as a "war crime".
A number of Israeli fanatics tried to assault the demonstrators and the shipment but the Arab youths confronted them and foiled their assault.
