Gaza-bound convoy crossing Asian countries on its way to Palestine

Iran, Malaysia, India are only a few of the countries involved in the ongoing humanitarian project aimed at breaking the illegal siege on the Gaza Strip, imposed by the zionist regime that has been occupying Palestine since 1948.

Last Gaza-bound Flotilla ended tragically with Israeli Navy killing in cold blood nine Turkish peace activists, but Asian humanitarian organisations don't seem to be afraid of challenging the illegal zionist regime once again.

The participants in the convoy are in total 83: 45 activists from India, 20 from Iran, 13 from Indonesia, 7 from Pakistan, 2 from Malaysia, 2 from Japan, 2 from Azerbaijan and 2 from Bahrain.

Right now the convoy is in Turkey. The activists have crossed Iran, where they met Tehran's mayor and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, nonetheless, who welcomed them and blessed their effort to break the inhumane Gaza blockade.

It's possible to follow the convoy step by step thanks to the daily updates of Asia 2 Gaza Caravan Facebook page, and their Twitter account, asia2gaza.

Thank you for this article. Is it just me or the major media "players" haven't reported this?

Yes you're right, mainstream media haven't reported this, and to be honest, much of the so-called "independent press" neither!
