Al Qassam website- Gaza- Palestinian premier Ismail Haneyya reiterated his appeal to the Egyptian authorities to end its blockade on the Gaza Strip, saying it is unreasonable to secure Egypt’s security at the expense of the humanitarian situation in the Strip.
In his Friday Khutba (sermon), premier Haneyya called on the Egyptian regime to stop its arbitrary incitement campaign against the Palestinians and Gaza.
“Egypt has the right to protect its security, but it must not be at the expense of Gaza,” the premier highlighted in his speech.
He also expressed his dismay at Egypt’s destruction of the Rafah border tunnels without finding an alternative fulfilling the humanitarian needs of the Gaza people.
Haneyya also said that his government initiated contacts with several regional countries to stop the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Gaza as a result of the escalating blockade.
He affirmed that his government is ready to cooperate with the Egyptian security apparatuses about any alleged Palestinian involvement in events happening in their territories.
In a separate context, premier Ismail Haneyya is expected to meet on Saturday afternoon representatives and leaders of the Palestinian political factions to discuss with them some important issues of mutual interest.
His political advisor Yousuf Rizqa affirmed that Haneyya would table during the meeting the escalating blockade on Gaza and the need to find agreeable solutions to the crises plaguing the daily lives of its population.
