GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The High Committee to Lift the Siege on Gaza said on Friday that it plans to escalate its efforts in the face of the continuing Israeli siege on Gaza.

Spokesman for the committee Hammad al-Raqb told Ma'an that the efforts would begin today with activities including mass phone calls to consulates and embassies calling for an end to the siege.

"After eight years of siege and after the closure of tunnels, the siege intensified and we have to raise our voice to influence public opinion to end the siege on Gaza," al-Raqb said.

"Palestinians launched two intifadas before, and will not fail to launch a third one" if Israeli forces continue to "starve and humiliate us," he added.

The Gaza Strip has been under a severe economic blockade imposed by Israel since 2006.

The blockade has severely limited the imports and exports of the Gaza Strip and has led to frequent humanitarian crises and hardship for Gazans.

Bravo! Go for it! Everything militarist/apartheid Israel is doing is ILLEGAL & inhumane!Just because our US govt(Israel/Zionism's patron)prefers to usurp international laws,conventions,treaties as a law unto itself only,doesn't mean that the rest of the world agrees with IT! Its policies have obviously failed post WW2 and this is STILL NOT 'Planet USA'. USA needs the approval of,relations,trade,good diplomacy with, the rest of the planet,far more than it needs the burden of belligerent Zionism!!

''if Israeli forces continue to "starve and humiliate us," The High Committee to Lift the Siege on Gaza has clearly not heard about the besieged Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk outside Damascus, where some 40,000 are said to be slowly starving to death.

Raise your voices loud and clear. Get teams calling en masse, put flyers on Facebook, use Twitter (obviously not Al Qissam, because that's suspended), write letters, post video clips on U Tube, let the world join in the chant: LIFT THE SIEGE ON GAZA!!! Good Luck.
