Egypt sent on Friday a massive relief convoy to the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, Presidential Spokesman Bassam Rady said, adding that the convoy grouped 130 aid-laden trucks.

The trucks, laden with 2,500 tons of foodstuff, medicines, baby formula, clothes and appliances, are provided by Long Live Egypt Fund to the Palestinian people, Rady added.

He said that sending the convoy comes in line with directives by President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to offer all support for the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

An Egyptian-sponsored ceasefire deal has been reached between Israel and the Palestinian factions to end an 11-day military operation in the Gaza Strip. It came into effect as of Friday 21 May at 2am (23:00 GMT) Palestinian time.
