BRUSSELS,The European campaign to lift the siege on the Gaza Strip has appealed to the Egyptian concerned authorities to facilitate the entry of the European Hope aid convoy to the Gaza Strip before Eid Al-Adha.

The Brussels-based campaign appealed in a press release on Sunday to all concerned authorities including the Egyptian, Libyan, and Greek authorities to facilitate the entry of the humanitarian aid into Gaza, especially when it was stranded at the Libyan-Egyptian borders for a month.

It asked Cairo not to close the Rafah border terminal on the Eid holiday and allow entry of the convoy, pointing out that Gaza was in dire need of assistance carried by such aid convoys.

"The aim of the aid convoys is to help the besieged Palestinians and break the oppressive siege imposed on them for the fifth year running", the campaign said, adding that such an aim should be appreciated.

The Egyptian authorities announced that the Rafah border crossing with Gaza would be closed as of Monday till next Sunday throughout the Eid holiday, which meant that no aid would be allowed into the Strip during those days.
