The government committee against the siege on Thursday invited US president Barack Obama, who is currently visiting Egypt, to visit Gaza Strip to see for himself the amount of suffering of one and a half million besieged Palestinians.

The committee in a press statement said that Obama should come to Gaza to witness the repercussions of the oppressive siege not known before in the history of mankind.

It asked Obama to pressure Israel to open the crossings and lift the siege in order to reconstruct what Israel had destroyed during its latest war on Gaza and to save thousands of families from displacement and living in the open without shelter.

The committee held Obama responsible for the serious humanitarian deterioration in the Strip in his capacity as president of the US, which can pressure Israel.

The statement said that the talk about democracy and supporting the weak around the world should be translated into deeds, the committee concluded.
