London, ALRAY - Chairman of the International Committee for Breaking the Siege of Gaza and also founder member of Freedom Flotilla Coalition Zaher Birawi has unveiled a new attempt by Freedom Flotilla to break Gaza naval blockade.
Birawi indicated, in press statements, that the new Freedom Flotilla might be carrying nominal relief items, considering that the core aim of the Flotilla is attempting to break Israel’s illegal blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip for more than 13 years in a row.
Solidarity caravans which provide political and media support to Gaza and ask for breaking Gaza blockade are no longer allowed by Egyptian authorities; however, the authorities have maintained a bare minimum of the charitable and relief convoys that managed to enter the Gaza Strip a few times during the recent years and months, Birawi said.
Birawi pointed out that the Freedom Flotilla Coalition organized during the current year a number of anti-siege activities and projects which raise awareness and political pressure to break the blockade of Gaza and to expose its devastated impacts on the Palestinian people, particularly youths and children.
Chairman of the committee stressed that the Freedom Flotilla Coalition is composed of a large number of civil society organizations that work in the field of political affairs and focus on the Palestinian right to freedom of movement and breaking the siege.
