GAZA, (PIC)– Members of Asia aid convoy arrived late on Sunday evening in the besieged Gaza Strip after the Egyptian authorities allowed them to cross through the Rafah border terminal.

The government committee for breaking the siege and receiving delegations said 120 out of 180 activists participating in the convoy were allowed in and would stay in Gaza until next Thursday.

The convoy consists of eight trucks and four ambulances loaded with 1, 000 ton of medical supplies, clothing, baby milk, and appliances for people with special needs.

It is considered the first Asian convoy that breaks Gaza siege and its members are academics, journalists, lawyers, university students and representatives of civil organizations from different religions.

The government committee also said it received a telephone call from the secretary-general of the standing committee for the support of the Palestinian people in Libya who told it that the Libyan aid convoy Al-Quds 5 would arrive at the Egyptian port of Arish next Tuesday.

The committee stated that the Egyptian leadership headed by president Muammar Al-Gaddafi and his people would keep standing by the Palestinian people until Israel ends its blockade on Gaza and its occupation of Palestine.
