An aid convoy organized by international peace activists has arrived in Turkey on its way to Gaza before breaking the Israeli siege on the territory.
The convoy, which left London on December 5, was welcomed by thousands of Turkish activists and the general public on Wednesday, said Jody Sabral, the Press TV correspondent.
At least 50 vans of aid provided by Turkish NGOs will join the convoy to raise the number of the trucks that have participated in the humanitarian initiative to over 120.
British lawmaker and Press TV presenter George Galloway, who is one of the organizers of the convoy, says it is scheduled to arrive in the Gaza Strip on the anniversary of last year’s Israeli aggression on the coastal area.
In July, a similar aid convoy managed to break the Israeli blockade and enter the Gaza Strip to deliver vital supplies to Palestinians.
