CAIRO, August 29, 2011 (WAFA) – The European aid convoy, Border Martyrs, arrived in the Sinai in preparation to enter Gaza through Rafah crossing, Monday said Jaber al-Arab, chairman of the Egyptian Red Crescent in North Sinai.

The convoy includes 100 Arab and foreign activists and consists of 10 cars for the disabled, milk and 25 tons of medicine and medical equipments.

Al-Arab said that the Egyptian and Palestinian Red Crescents finished all procedures for the entrance of the convoy to Gaza, stressing the Egyptian Red Crescent’s continuing role in facilitating the entrance of all domestic and foreign aids to the besieged Gaza strip.

The Border Martyrs Convoy, which is used to be called Miles of Smiles, changed its name to honor Egyptian soldiers recently killed by Israeli soldiers.
