Gaza, Al Ray - Miles of Smiles Convoy (26) arrived Thursday in Gaza with solidarity activists from 21 nations worldwide.
Deputy Foreign Minister, Ghazi Hamad, welcomed the convoy's activists "Here Gaza, where we share patience and resilience,"
Hamad expressed hope that the convoy encourages other convoys. He appreciated the delegation’s determination to come to the besieged Gaza Strip, and thanked Egypt for facilitating the convoy's arrival, calling for a permanent opening of the Rafah Crossing.
A delegation member told Al Ray correspondent that "The Palestinian people want his freedom and land; we support his claims and will show his support in moral and material means,”
"The convoy stands for your reach to the free world; you are not alone facing this unjust siege,” he added.
