Egypt has allowed an Asian aid convoy to enter Gaza via Al-Arish in Sinai, but has prevented Iranian activists from passing, reported Egyptian daily Al-Ahram on Thursday.

According to the report, Cairo gave permission for the "Asia to Gaza Caravan" or "Asia1" to pass through Egypt to Gaza, said Khaled Abdel Megid, a member of the Palestinian National Congress.

He stated that the Egyptian embassy in Damascus told the convoy that 120 activists could pass on to Gaza, but 46 activists from Iran and Jordan were denied entry.

Al-Ahram also reported that Egypt will not allow 10 generators donated by Iran to enter Gaza.
