"Gaza / PNN - The two ships designed to “Break the Siege” on Gaza arrived on the shores of Mediterranean in a symbolic gesture aimed at drawing attention to the suffering of the Gaza Strip brought on by the Israeli siege.
The message is clear: lift the siege and end the suffering of the Gaza Strip’s 1.5 million Palestinians. The boats were able to come ashore after much Israeli tampering with the mission.....
Hamas Spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhari criticized Arab leaders for the continued silence concerning the siege and demanded that the Rafah border crossing with Egypt be opened.
Dr. Iyad Al Sarraj invited the group to stay for at least three days to witness the situation on the ground in the Strip.
A leader of the leftist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine ran to greet the boats in thanks for this "act of resistance against occupation.""
