Gaza-bound European aid to arrive in Arish on Tuesday

The "Road to Hope" Humanitarian Aid Convoy is scheduled to arrive in the Egyptian coastal city of Arish on Tuesday.

According to project coordinator Mohamed al-Haddad, the convoy will provide the besieged coastal enclave with 30 ambulances and 95 tons of food.

Egyptian authorities had earlier declined a request by convoy organizers to bring the aid in through Egypt's Al-Saloum border crossing with Libya.

At the time, Egypt's ambassador to Libya said that all aid deliveries to the strip must be made via the Arish seaport in order that the Egyptian Red Crescent might transport it from there across the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza and the Auja border crossing between Egypt and Israel.
