    BERLIN, (PIC)-- The German parliament has passed a cross-party motion calling for an end to the Israeli blockade on the Gaza Strip saying that the blockade was counter-productive.

    "The living conditions of the civilian population of Gaza must be urgently improved," said the motion, adding that the blockade was counterproductive.

    The motion was supported by all parties from the three party governing coalition to the opposition Social Democratic Party; and the Green Party.

    International pressure on Tel Aviv increased following Israel's vicious May 31 attack on an aid flotilla bound for Gaza.
