Tens of trucks loaded with medicine and medical supplies started their trek from Scotland to the besieged Gaza Strip on Saturday organized by Justice for Palestine organization in Scotland.

The organization announced that the "Trip aims at providing aid to the residents of the besieged Gaza Strip, and that several institutions and organizations in Scotland and the UK are participating in this humanitarian mission".

A statement on the occasion read: "The organizers said that this trip also aims at raising awareness on the issue of the ongoing Israeli siege which was imposed on Gaza three years ago. The group invited several Scottish parliamentarians to participate in the trip in order to increase the pressure on the Israeli occupation to end the siege on Gaza and open the Rafah Border Terminal, on the Gaza-Egypt border.

The trucks would drive from Glasgow city; drive by the Scottish parliament, where the participants will hold a press conference in front of the parliament before heading towards Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey and Egypt.
Heading to Egypt will be conducted either by sea from Cyprus, or by land through Syria, Jordan and then to Egypt.
