UAE sends additional medical aid to Gaza

WAM

Ten fully-equipped ambulances have crossed into the Gaza Strip as part of the UAE’s efforts to support the enclave's healthcare system.

They'll serve the Emirati field hospital, which has received almost 4,000 patients so far, and other health facilities.

Additionally, 29 Emirates Red Crescent trucks loaded with aid and medical supplies entered the Gaza Strip on Monday.

Their arrival through the Egyptian Rafah border post is part of the continuing Gallant Knight 3 humanitarian operation, which has provided more than 10,575 tonnes of aid, with 435 land trucks and shiploads sent, in addition to 154 cargo planes.

Meanwhile over 18,000 winter clothes have been distributed along with 11,200 meals, while shelters have also been provided for the displaced in Rafah.
