GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A solidarity group from South Africa arrived in Gaza Thursday evening, for a four-day visit they have called "Freedom for detainees."

The 36 activists will meet with figures who work on the issue of Palestinian detainees in Israeli jail, a Ma'an correspondent said.

The group brought 10 trucks of medical and humanitarian supplies, entering through the southern Rafah crossing between the Gaza Strip and Egypt.
