MP Jamal Al-Khudari, the head of the popular committee against the siege, on Monday denounced the Israeli occupation authority for blocking the entry of a European parliamentary delegation into the Gaza Strip for a few hours.
Khudari in a press release said that such practice did not affect the European parliamentary delegation that insisted on demanding access into the Strip, which was finally granted through the Beit Hanun (Erez) crossing in northern Gaza.
The European MPs would be briefed on the Strip"s suffering and would tour many utilities that were affected by the IOA siege, he added.
Khudari urged the world parliamentarians to embark on similar steps to express solidarity with the beleaguered Strip and to demand an end to its siege.
