    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.”

    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.
