GAZA, (PIC)– Dozens of Palestinian youths staged a sit-in in front of the UN headquarters on Wednesday afternoon in Gaza City to demand the United Nations to shoulder its responsibilities vis-à-vis the suffering of the Palestinian people.

Intifada Youth Coalition handed a letter directed to the UN to one of its representatives in Gaza, in which the young people urged the organization to intervene to stop the Judaization of Jerusalem, to lift the Gaza siege and to remove the restrictions imposed on the citizens of the West Bank.

The youths informed the representative of the United Nations of their intention to break the naval blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip and called for providing the participants in the event with international protection, especially after the occupation announced the deployment of advanced battleships off the coast of Gaza.

The coalition demanded the Palestinian masses to head to all points of contact next Friday and confront the occupation soldiers and armed settlers.

It also stressed on its intention to break the barrier of the 6 nautical miles imposed on Gaza fishermen, and said it held consultations with foreign activists and some human rights organizations in the Strip regarding the implementation of the activity expected in the coming days.
