A large land convoy began making its way on Saturday from around the world to the Gaza Strip.
Vehicles were loaded onto ships and are en-route to the el-Arish Port in Egypt where they hope to be allowed to unload and drive into Gaza. According to press reports, about 450 vehicles are expected to participate in the land convoy which is organized by former British lawmaker George Galloway.
Vehicles are coming from England, Kuwait, Algeria. Tunisia and Morocco. In January, the Egyptians banned Galloway from using their territory for Gaza-bound convoys and accused the former British lawmaker’s organization Viva Palestina of criminal activity.
