Qatar’s National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) chairman Dr Ali bin Smaikh al-Marri has underlined the urgent need to put an end to the suffering endured by the citizens and residents of Qatar as well as Saudi Arabian, Emirati and Bahraini citizens, as a result to the siege imposed on Qatar for more than 115 days.

During Dr al-Marri’s meeting with the two US Republican Congressmen Trent Franks and Gus Bilirakis, he presented in detail the impact of the siege on the humanitarian status of the civilians in Qatar and the three mentioned Gulf countries, especially the status of families, students, patients and other social categories.

He also praised the efforts of the US human rights institutions, organisations and activists to lift this inhumane siege, and their solidarity with the humanitarian crisis it entails.

He requested the two Republican Congressmen to intensify the efforts, move quickly and take more firm actions to pressure the siege countries and force them to respond to the global call to end the siege immediately and with no conditions.
