EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma’an) – A delegation of 40 international solidarity activists from different countries entered the Gaza Strip on Saturday afternoon via Egypt’s Rafah crossing.

Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh welcomed the group upon their arrival, stressing that such aid convoys confirm that the Palestinian people are not alone confronting the Israeli occupation.
The group left humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip which will be sent later.
The aid includes, according to the source, 14 vehicles for disabled people in addition to medicines and an x-ray machine. The cargo is being checked at Alexandria port.
