‘Miles of Smiles 6’ aid convoy in Gaza

Fri Oct 7, 2011

The humanitarian aid convoy called the “Miles of Smiles 6” entered Gaza on late Wednesday with about 100 tons of urgently needed medicines, a Press TV correspondent reported from Gaza.

The activists accompanying the convoy are mostly from European, African and Asian countries.

The “Miles of Smiles 6” aims at providing medical supplies that are not available because of the ongoing Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip. The convoy wants to raise awareness about the life in Gaza.

A convoy member from South Africa, Ibrahim Ismael told Press TV “Obviously we are well aware of the siege and we want to make our presence felt in regard to the unethical nature of the siege as well as assist the people of Gaza in the times of need.”

A Kuwaiti member of the “Miles of Smiles 6” said, we have come to support Palestinian people in Gaza as much as we can.

Earlier on Wednesday, separate delegations from Germany and Tunisia representing civil organizations concluded their visits to Gaza by holding press conferences in Gaza City.

German activist of Pax Christy Society, Wiltrud Rosch Metzler told reporters that “It’s important for us to continue our work against the siege.”

She added, “We also supported the Free Gaza Movement last year. It is important to work against the siege of Gaza and for the end of (Israeli) occupation. ”

Tunisian Dignity Convoy activist, Sabrin Al-Areebi, stated that we are here to show solidarity with our Palestinian brothers and sisters as people in Gaza also want a decent and dignified life.
