Israel occupation nearing its end

A spokesman for the international Viva Palestina aid convoy, which is set to break Israel's siege of the Gaza Strip, says the Israeli occupation of Palestine is near its end.

"The life of the occupation is shortening,"  Zaher Birawi as saying on Sunday.

Tel Aviv, meanwhile, retains its occupation of the Palestinian territories surrounding Gaza and has been keeping the coastal sliver under an all-out land, naval and aerial blockade for more than three years.

Viva Palestina has been arranged by a UK-based charity of the same name, headed by former British lawmaker George Galloway.

The convoy left London for Gaza earlier this month in its fifth attempt to bring relief supplies to the impoverished enclave.

It recently stopped by in Turkey, where it paid respect to Cetin Topcuoglu, one of the nine Turks who died in a May Israeli attack on the Freedom Flotilla -- a Gaza-bound aid convoy.

Viva Palestina recently arrived in Syria, where it was greeted by thousands of supporters and joyously received by high-profile Syrian politicians.

"The convoy will be boosted by more vehicles coming from different Arab countries, from Morocco to Qatar. The vehicles would outnumber 115,"
