Spain demands ‘complete end’ to Gaza siege

MADRID, (PIC)– Spain is demanding Israel puts a complete and not partial stop to the five-year blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip.

Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos told the press Saturday: “When Spain chaired the European Union it took binding stances condemning Israel’s use of excessive force against the Strip’s inhabitants.”

On another note, the Spanish minister said that Turkey “is a great country, and plays a constructive role in the various conflicts and crises in the region.”

In related developments, the Canada Post Corporation announced that it has stopped accepting mail sent to the besieged Gaza Strip because of Israeli postal interference.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation quoted the post firm as saying that it no longer accepts mail sent to the Gaza Strip, as it is no longer certain that mail sent from Canada makes it to Gaza.

According to the postal service, Israeli authorities informed them that “tensions in the area have pushed the Israeli postal service to cancel its service to the Strip.”

The Canada postal service aims to find new ways to deliver mail from Canada to the Gaza Strip.

Israel has placed Gaza under siege for five years straight. 1,700,000 Palestinians are deprived basic requirements as a result. The Israeli government has particularly banned the entry of building materials used to restore the damage of the last Israeli war on Gaza nineteen months ago, which  left 1,400 Palestinian casualties, 25,000 homes destroyed, and complete devastation to Gaza’s infrastructure.
