Amnesty International stressed on Tuesday that 11-year-old strict Israeli siege imposed on Gaza must be lifted, millions of Palestine refuges must be allowed to go home.

In a sponsored short statement posted on social media, the rights group published an online petition, calling for internet users to sign it in order to ask Israel to lift its “strict illegal” siege imposed on Gaza.

The rights group also called for allowing millions of Palestinian refugees to go back to their homes, where their fathers were forcefully expelled by the Zionist gangs in 1948.

“Israel claims the siege is to afford security,” Amnesty International said, “but the fact is that the Palestinians are actually inside a large open-air prison.”

It added: “More than before, we need to prove to the world that the Palestinians are not alone in their crisis.”
