A large aid convoy from India and various Asian countries has left New Delhi and will reach the Gaza Strip at the end of December, according to the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center.

About 500 people are participating in the "Asia to Gaza Solidarity Caravan" from 17 Asian countries, some of which are "extreme leftist and Islamic activists who were joined by human rights and social activists," the report added. 

The organizers of the convoy include the Asian People's Solidarity for Palestine (APSP) and some of the organizers have links to the Free Gaza Movement (FGM), a coalition lead by extreme leftist US activists who played a central role in previous flotillas.
