GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A delegation of 19 solidarity activists from South Africa on Wednesday started a six-day visit to the Gaza Strip, a Hamas government official said.

Alaa al-Batta, who heads a governmental committee for hosting visiting delegations, told Ma’an that the visitors brought gifts for Gaza children "who have been suffering as a result of the siege."

"The South African delegation has been waiting in Cairo for about a week," added al-Batta.
