Prime Minister of caretaker government of Gaza , Ismail Haneyya described the aid convoy of “ Miles of Smiles 13 “ as “ great and distinguished” saying that the convoy with its participants is an “ announcement of victory against the siege”.
Haneyya added that when the enemy wanted to isolate Gaza from its environment, history, and civilization to punish the whole area, they didn’t succeed, and thanks to Allah Almighty, Gaza became the gate of liberation, and it would be the shortest way towards AlQuds, and Al-Aqsa Mosque”.
This came during the welcome ceremony of “Miles of Smiles 13” that entered to Gaza through Rafah crossing yesterday evening led by the head of the Jordanian branch of the Muslim brotherhood Sheikh Hammam Saeed.
The convoy includes 110 human rights activists most of them are Islamic movements’ leaders and the Arab spring leaders from 17 Arab countries carrying 10 tons of medical supplies to the hospitals in the besieged strip.
During a press conference on the Palestinian side of the border, Sheikh Saeed said that "the arrival of the convoy is a new page of the Jihad against the occupation of the Palestinian territories," confirming that "the occupation is doomed and Palestine will definitely rise again".
For his part, Sheikh Hamza Mansoor, the secretary-general of the Islamic Action Front in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, said that the convoy carries a solidarity message to support the besieged people in Gaza and to demand an end to the unfair siege imposed on them, stating that the convoy's visit will last for a week during which the Jordanian delegation will meet with Palestinian figures.
Dr. Essam Youssef, the convoy's General Director, said that the convoy included Islamic leaderships and figures from the Arab spring representing 17 Arab countries including Lebanon, Tunisia, Libya, Jordan. They all came to support the Palestinian cause and to confirm that the occupation will soon vanish.
