GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Deputy Prime Minister of the Gaza government Muhammad Awad applauded the growing prominence of the Palestinian issue in the Arab world, after meeting with a delegation from Bahrain during their visit to the Gaza Strip.

Gaza premier Ismail Haniyeh is in Bahrain as part of his second regional tour in recent months, and met with his Bahraini counterpart Prince Khalifa bin Salman al-Khalifa on Sunday.

Meanwhile a delegation from Bahrain visited the Prime Minister’s office on Monday, after which Awad praised Palestine’s ties to the Gulf kingdom.

He said the Palestinian cause was now more important than ever before, and considered a Muslim cause that all should support.

The deputy premier urged Arab and Islamic countries to break the siege on the Gaza Strip. Israel has tightened a land and sea blockade on the 1.5 million-strong population since Hamas seized power in 2007.
