Viva Palestina 3" humanitarian aid convoy arrived in Egyptian port of El-Arish Sunday evening coming from Syria, an official from El-Arish port told Xinhua.
A Turkish ship, which carries the convoy from the
Syrian port of Lattakia to Egypt, arrived in the Egyptian port of El-Arish on Sunday evening, said Gamal Abdel Maqsoud, head of El-Arish port, Xinhua reported.
The international humanitarian aid convoy consists of food and medical equipment from Europe, Turkey and Arab countries.
The shipment would be unloaded in the port and be transferred to the Gaza Strip via Rafah crossing, according to Egypt's official MENA news agency. Members and organizers of the convoy are expected to fly into El-Arish on Monday, according to the report.
The Viva Palestina humanitarian convoy, led by British lawmaker George Galloway, left Syria's Lattakia port Wednesday afternoon heading for the El-Arish to enter the besieged strip.
The convoy, which departed from London on Dec. 6, returned to Syria on Tuesday from the Jordanian harbor of Al-Aqaba after the Egyptian authorities requested that the convoy enter through El- Arish on its Mediterranean coast.
