Hamas declares the siege of Gaza is over!

From Safa:
The head of the Palestinian government in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas, said that the Gaza Strip isopen for those who want to invest, and said, "We will cooperate with him, including availability of our resources."

Haniyeh suggested during a [ceremony marking] the opening of a series of projects in the central Gaza Strip on Sunday night that the sector is now post-siege. He said: "We have turned around the five years of the siege, and what we are doing now is a challenge to the blockade."

He pointed out that there were thousands of tons of building materials filling the cities of Gaza, and those who want to invest will find the means.

Examples of building projects include a park and playground in Nusseirat, the Central Market, the Maghazi Youth Club, and the Palestinian Social Centre in Deir el-Balah.

He praised such projects, they reflect the steadfastness of the Palestinian people.

Haniyeh stressed that this human effort all over Gaza set up many projects of all levels, to demonstrate that Gaza had defeated the plots and triumphed over the blockade.
The flotilla drones can celebrate! Their job is done!
