“Going back is out of the question”, Yousef said, “We are determined to deliver the humanitarian supplies to the residents of the Gaza Strip”.

In an interview with the Al Aqsa TV, Yousef stated that convoy members started a hunger strike to protest Egypt’s refusal to allow them into Gaza.

He added that they contacted several European institutions and diplomatic missions, but added that ‘so far, the outcome is disappointing”.

The convoy includes more than 100 vehicles, 275 wheelchairs, computers for bombarded schools, and other basic supplies.
