GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An Arab parliamentary convoy arrived Thursday in Gaza through the Rafah crossing.

Abdul Qader Samary, chairman of the Arab committee to lift the siege on Gaza, said, "we will continue struggling to liberate Palestine from the enemy who acts outside any laws."

He stressed the necessity to achieve the Palestinian reconciliation.

Ahmad Bahar, on behalf of the parliament, welcomed the delegation in Gaza and called for the continuation of delegations to visit Gaza to break the Israeli siege on Gaza.

An Egyptian security source in Rafah told Ma’an that the convoy consists of 28 tons of medicines and medical equipment and seven truckloads of clothes.

The aid was transferred from Egyptian trucks to Palestinians at the crossing.

The source added that the delegation includes 22 members of the Arab parliamentary.

This is the third convoy being sent by Arab parliamentarians.

On Wednesday, Egyptian authorities allowed four tons of medical aid through the Rafah crossing. It was sent by the tenth "Miles of Smiles" convoy.
