Khudari, gov't committee appreciate congressmen's letter to Obama

MP Jamal Al-Khudari, the head of popular committee against the siege, and the government committee against the siege issued two separate statements on Tuesday appreciating the letter sent by 54 American congressmen to president Barack Obama regarding the Gaza siege.

The lawmaker said that pressures on the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) should not stop but rather must expand.

The government committee, for its part, said that the letter though not enough was still appreciated especially when the American administration is the main supporter of the IOA.

It said that the West is now convinced that the IOA siege and starvation with international collusion and American backing had failed.

The congressmen asked Obama to pressure the IOA into lifting the siege on Gaza.
