Chairman of the Popular Committee Against the Siege (PCAS), MP Jamal al-Khudari, commended the stream of solidarity delegations arriving in the Gaza Strip, but stressed that these appreciated efforts should culminate in the opening of the border crossings to start the rebuilding of Gaza.
Khudari, said in a press statement, that solidarity delegations visit the Gaza Strip, see for themselves the suffering of the people there because of the lack of essential goods, then they make press conferences about what they saw.
He added that the people in the Gaza Strip cannot build one wall or carry out any renovation work, because of the lack of building materials in the Strip as a result.
He called for working on two fronts in parallel, to collect the necessary financial aid to rebuild the Strip and to pressure Israel to end the siege.
Khudari stressed that the situation in the Gaza Strip is critical especially after the Israeli destruction of the infrastructure and thousands of citizens" homes making thousands of families homeless.
