Gaza-PNN- Humanitarian aid convoy arrived in the Gaza Strip on Sunday evening through the Rafah Border Terminal.


ImageThe group called, Miles for Smiles, consisted of eight trucks containing medical supplies, medications, milk for infants and cars especially designed for people with disabilities.

Thirty-five solidarity activists crossed with the convoy and helped to deliver the supplies especially the G19 formula for premature infants.

According to IMEMC News local sources reported that officials in Gaza welcomed the aid convoy while thousands of residents came out to greet the participants.

The aid was in high demand due to the continuing siege on Gaza, which has severely hampered the access and availability of medications and crucial medical supplies.
