Kuhdari launches “enough one thousand days of blockade” events
MP Jamal Al-Khudari, the head of the popular committee against the siege, on Sunday announced the launch of a series of events under the title “enough one thousand days of blockade, freedom for Gaza” to mark the passage of 1,000 days since Israel imposed its siege on the Gaza Strip.

Khudari told a news conference that the events will kick off with lighting one thousand candles in the unknown soldier plaza and organizing a rally at Beit Hanoun crossing against the Israeli occupation.

The lawmaker called on the Arab and Muslim nations, and the world’s free people to organize similar events on this occasion to revive the blockade issue and urge the international community to pressure Israel to end its unjust siege.

He pointed to some of the tragic impacts of the siege on the daily life of Gaza people, saying the Israeli blockade prompted one million Gazans to rely on relief assistance and made 80 percent of the population live below the poverty line.

For his part, Maan Bashour, the head of the Arab international center for communication and solidarity, appealed on Sunday to all Arab and international unions, institutions and national figures to move and act in support of occupied Jerusalem, the Aqsa Mosque, Gaza, Al-Khalil and the Palestinian people against the ongoing Israeli violations.

In a press release, Bashour stressed that the Arab nation and the world’s free people are invited today to stage a wide global uprising to support the Palestinian people and their rights.

He urged them to organize all forms of activities that highlight the different Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people and their holy sites.
