Farouq Al-Qaddoumi, the head of the PLO's political department, has rejected the steel wall currently constructed by Egypt along its borders with the Gaza Strip and asked the Arab countries to support Palestinian resistance.

Qaddoumi, in a statement to the Tunisian daily Al-Shuruq published on Saturday, said that Gaza is already besieged from all areas and the steel wall would only increase the pressure of siege on the Gazans.

The US and the EU are pressuring Egypt to build this wall in a bid to destroy tunnels and halt smuggling of goods into Gaza, he charged.

The Palestinian leader said that the Arab countries should extend assistance to Palestinian resistance.

He advocated the convening of a session for the Palestinian national council (PLO's parliament in exile) that should be attended by all forces whether those members of the PLO or outside it in reference to Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
