Hundreds of Egyptians Reportedly on 'Solidarity Trip'

A bus convoy transporting members of several Egyptian parties and political movements arrived at the Rafah border crossing with Gaza, in a show of solidarity with terrorists in the Gaza Strip.

“We want the free world to stop the onslaught on defenseless civilians,” said Mahmoud Ali of the Constitution Party, according to state-owned news agency MENA. “We want to relay to the steadfast Palestinian people the support of all Egyptians.”

The Ahram Online Egyptian newspaper reported the number of activists crossing into Gaza had reached 550, with the convoy including eight buses, along with several other smaller vehicles.
