 Arab League chief Amr Moussa said during his first-ever visit to the Gaza Strip on Sunday that a four-year siege on the Gaza Strip must be broken.

"This blockade which we are all here to confront must be broken and the position of the Arab League is clear," Moussa said after Palestinian officials from several factions welcomed him at the Rafah border with Egypt.

"Not only the Arabs, but the entire world should stand with the Palestinian people against the siege of Gaza and what is happening in the occupied territories, especially east Jerusalem," he said.

Moussa reached the Palestinian side of the Rafah crossing, where he was welcomed by representatives of all Palestinian groups.
