In a statement posted on Facebook, Yousef Al-Qaradawi called for lifting the siege and starting rebuilding projects.

“Despite the widespread oppression, there are free people around the globe who challenge the oppressors and defend the oppressed.

“They do not care about their suffering to achieve their goals.

“We salute every participant in the Freedom Flotilla III and we salute the courageous and free man who adopts the issues of his nation, the former Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki,” Al-Qaradawi said.

He also thanked all the activists who took part in the flotilla and suffered a lot in an attempt to revitalise the Palestinian issue.

The siege is trapped nearly two million Palestinians in Gaza leaving them with amongst their destroyed homes, with no work, no education or proper health care, Al-Qaradawi said, calling for the siege to be lifted to allow the residents to live a decent life.
