The latest convoy to the Gaza Strip arrived in the southeastern Turkish town of Diyarbakir in the latest stage of its journey on Sunday, PressTV reported.

The Asian People's Solidarity for Palestine convoy was comprised of some 50 pro-Palestinian activists and originated in India at the beginning of December, according to the report. It has since passed through Pakistan and Iran. The activists plan on continuing through Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt before attempting to cross into the Gaza Strip on the two-year anniversary of Operation Cast Lead, on December 27.
