BRDO PRI KRANJU, Slovenia — President Shimon Peres said the blockade of Gaza will end when Hamas abandons terrorism on a visit to Slovenia on Thursday.

The Israeli blockade of naval imports of humanitarian aid to Gaza "would be lifted in five minutes if Gaza would stop acting as a terrorist state," said Peres.

He reiterated, "peace is not in our hands."
