    GAZA, (PIC)-- The Palestinian trade union association has organized a sit-in Wednesday in front of the Rafah border crossing southern Gaza Strip.

    Protesters are demanding full opening of the crossing to allow the flow of humanitarian aid, commodities and needed medical supplies into the Gaza Strip.

    During a press conference held outside the crossing gates, Marwan al-Hams, speaking on behalf of the association, called on the Egyptian government to open the crossing.

    The Gaza Strip currently suffers a critical shortage in medicines, building materials and other necessary commodities due to the Israeli siege on the tiny enclave.

    Scores of doctors, pharmacists, academics, tradesman shouted demands to immediately open the Rafah crossing holding banners demanding an end to the siege.

    How can they call it an enclave? Palistans never make sense, though.
