AMMAN, (PIC)–  The Miles of Smiles aid convoys to Gaza would send three new convoys to the Gaza Strip including one for women in March.

Issam Yousef, the coordinator of those convoys, said in a press release on Saturday that twenty Jordanian women would take part in March’s convoy, which would also witness the participation of women from various other Arab and Islamic countries.

He explained that two others would be organized in April and May, the first for youth in the age category 15-20 and would specifically arrive from South Africa. He said that the idea is that those youth would symbolically contribute in the development of the enclave.

Yousef noted that the convoy in May would be allocated for leaders from various Arab and Islamic countries, adding that he would try and convince western leaders to take part in that convoy.

The coordinator said that the convoys target inspiring hope among Gazans and let them feel that the world did not forget them.

“Our visits to Gaza are not for picnicking but rather for economic, political, informational, and relief purposes in addition to documenting Israeli crimes against Gaza,” Yousef concluded.
