Speaker Nabih Berri also plans to travel to Syria . He heads to Damascus on Tuesday to participate in the extraordinary conference of the Parliamentary Union of Islamic Countries, the National News Agency reported.

The conference will discuss efforts to lift the Israeli blockade of Gaza, NNA said.
