Spokesperson of the Artery of Life 5 (Viva Palestina 5) solidarity convoy Zaher Beerawi, said that the Egyptian Authority decided on Wednesday evening to allow the convoy to enter the Gaza Strip to deliver humanitarian supplies. Beerawi said that the convoy will be leaving the Al Lathiqiyya Syrian port on Friday and will be heading to the Al Arish Egyptian port before heading overland to Gaza.

The Egyptian Authorities informed convoy organizers that ten members of the convoy will not be allowed into the country.

Egyptian security forces had transferred six Indonesian activists from Al Arish port to Cairo, apparently in preparation to deport them, the Palestine Information Center reported.

The six were planning to join the solidarity convoy after it arrives in Egypt.
