The Ulosoy-6, a Turkish private cargo ship loaded with Viva Palestina’s 220 vehicles packed with relief material which left Syria’s Latakia port yesterday, has arrived safely at El-arish port in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula.
Viva Palestina convoy leader Kevin Ovenden said the good news was that the Egyptian custom authorities had cleared all materials and aid worth more than a million dollars after cursory checks and that the convoy was set to be on its way to Rafah, once all the contingent members had reunited.
The convoy hopes to arrive at the Rafah border on Tuesday morning. The border is a 40km drive from El-arish. BERNAMA
