GAZA -- The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Tuesday barred Rajmohan Gandhi, the grandson of Indian independence leader Mahatma Gandhi, from entering Gaza Strip.

Gandhi expressed absolute sorrow for not being able to visit Gaza, adding that he was deeply depressed over the scenes of repression he witnessed in the Palestinian lands.

He said that the Israeli talk about a Palestinian state in light of
those de facto conditions was "meaningless", adding that the separation wall, settlements and bypass roads were more horrific than what he imagined before visiting Palestine.

Gandhi said that the Israeli government was treating Palestinians as
second class citizens and was robbing their land.

He said he was deeply touched over the story of prisoner Fakhri
Al-Barghouthi who had been held in jail for 33 years and could not meet his two sons, whom he left as little children, until they were
detained by the IOF soldiers.

Gandhi said that he would publicize the Palestinian suffering in
India, the USA and any place he visits, adding that he would also exert efforts for the release of Palestinian prisoners.
