“The obligation is that what happened here doesn’t happen again,” AFP quoted Adams as saying.

Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams on Thursday denounced the Israel-led blockade on Gaza as has having made the coastal strip into an “open-air prison,” news outlets reported.

“This is a total denial of the rights of the people of Palestine. This is an open-air prison,” The Guardian quoted the Sinn Fein president as saying during a visit to the Hamas-ruled territory. “People can’t travel out of here, they can’t travel in.”

Israel and Egypt imposed a blockade on Gaza after Hamas ousted its secular rival Fatah in a bloody 2007 coup. >>>
