Tunisia sent aid ship to Gaza - via Egypt

For the first time since the Tunisian revolution, Tunisia has sent an aid ship to Gaza - but they are not going straight to Gaza, rather through Egypt.

Which is why there are no news articles about this.

The Tunisians have been waiting for a few days to get permission from Egyptian authorities to bring the goods through Egypt to the Rafah crossing.

The aid includes wheelchairs and medicines.

Meanwhile, as usual, some 300 trucks full of material are being sent from Israel to Gaza today, including gravel, cement and iron for international construction projects.
