The Ministry of Health, on Monday, sent a medical aid convoy worth $3 million to Gaza, announced Health Minister Jawad Awwad.
Awwad said that the ministry dispatched 20 truckloads of medical supplies, from its warehouses in the West Bank city of Nablus, to the besieged Gaza Strip, following the instructions of President Mahmoud Abbas and Premier Rami Hamdallah.
The medical aid convoy is expected to reach its destination within two days.
Gaza suffers from an even more serious shortage of medicines, now, due to the large number of injuries sustained during the Great March of Return protests along the eastern border of Gaza.
Israeli snipers have injured over 7,000 protesters, according to WAFA, including over 20 who had their legs amputated as a result of being shot with expanding “dum-dum” bullets.
