GAZA, (PIC)– Head of the popular committee against the siege MP Jamal Al-Khudari said that the entry of limited shipments of construction materials to the Gaza Strip through the Israeli-controlled crossing Karam Abu Salem is an insufficient step.

Khudari stated on Sunday that his committee works diligently to break the Israeli blockade on Gaza and have all crossings opened without any restrictions on the quantities and amounts of things allowed in.

He described the Israeli blockade as illegal and unjustifiable, and called on the world’s free people to form pressure groups aimed at forcing the Israeli occupation to end its siege on Gaza.

The lawmaker affirmed that the shipments of construction materials which Israel intends to allow into Gaza cover only 20 percent of the vital projects needed by Gaza and thus the problem is still unresolved.

In a related context, the ad hoc committee designated to coordinate the entry of goods into Gaza said that the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) would allow 410 trucks loaded with building materials to cross into Gaza.

Ra’ed Fattouh, head of the committee, stated that the construction materials would be allocated for the private sector and for the establishment of projects by international institutions, noting that limited shipments of fuel for different uses would be allowed in as well.

The IOA has been imposing a tight blockade on the densely-populated Strip for about seven years and opens Karam Abu Salem crossing intermittently for limited shipments of goods and fuel.
