One week of anti-siege events kicks off in Gaza and abroad
The National Anti-Siege and Reconstruction Movement Commission has announced the launch of its second week of events as part of the international campaign to break Gaza blockade. Spokeswoman for the commission Mona Sakik told a news conference held in Gaza Port Saturday morning that the campaign would be organized in different countries around the world under the slogan “Hand in hand against the siege.”
Sakik added that a massive maritime rally would be staged in Gaza waters in addition to a sit-in on the Palestinian side of the Rafah border crossing. She noted that a statement on Israel’s violations in Gaza would be released as part of the events. The campaign events, which will start today (August 20), will be held for one week.
