Possible Larnaca role in Gaza sea route

A EUROPEAN source has told Palestinian media outlets that Europe was willing to establish a sea route between the Gaza Strip and Larnaca meant for both people and merchandise, an Israeli news outlet reported on Saturday.

Quoting Palestinian media, Ynetnews said that, according to the initiative, European observers would be present both in Gaza and Larnaca in order to prevent security violations.

The source noted that Europe was interested in finding a comprehensive, permanent solution in order to save from having to rehabilitate the Strip every few years.

“We want to find a solution to the Gaza problem by reactivating the 2005 agreement on the crossings – including the crossing between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.” The source said that Europe has consulted with all relevant parties on the matter – including the Palestinian Authority, Israel, and Egypt – and is still waiting for their response.
