Egyptian authorities allowed on Sunday a delegation of political activists and revolutionary powers to cross to Gaza.

Four hundred political activists and members of revolutionary forces arrived in Rafah in a visit of solidarity with Palestinians in the face of the recent Israeli assaults on Gaza.

The visit "aims at declaring solidarity with the people of Gaza in the face of Israeli attacks and calling on the free world and international powers to stand up to Israel's practices and put an end to the vicious attack on unarmed civilians."
