Egypt Allows French Humanitarian Aid into Gaza

November 30, 2009

Last Wednesday, Egyptian authorities opened the Rafah border crossing for a French convoy conveying humanitarian aid to Gaza.   Ma’an News reports that the shipment included some nine tons of medical equipment as well as educational materials for Gazan schoolchildren collected by various French non-governmental organizations.

The Ma’an article also mentions that Israel is currently refusing a shipment of toys intended for Gazan children to pass through the blockade.
