Resheq calls on world community to protect Freedom Flotilla II

DAMASCUS, (PIC)– Political bureau member of Hamas Ezzet Al-Resheq has urged the world community and human rights groups to provide protection for the Freedom Flotilla II and to reject any attempt to impede its arrival at Gaza harbor.

Resheq criticized the US secretary of state Hillary Clinton, in a press statement published on his page on Facebook on Sunday, for describing the fleet’s sail to Gaza as a “provocation”.

He warned that such a statement gave Israel the green light to attack the fleet, which carries solidarity activists from 40 countries.

The US supportive stance of the “Zionist entity” enhances the latter’s siege of the Gaza Strip, the Hamas leader underlined.

Shifting to another issue, Resheq held Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu and his government responsible for the delay in concluding the prisoners’ exchange deal due to their impossible conditions and evasive manipulation.

The release of all Palestinian prisoners would remain the most noble national goal, he said, adding that captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit would never be released without the release of Palestinian prisoners
