Morocco’s Humanitarian Aid Arrives in Gaza

By on June 9, 2018

After stopping by Cairo’s West Air Base Airport, King Mohammed VI’s humanitarian aid for Palestinians in Gaza finally reached its destination on Friday night.

Earlier this week, four Moroccan aircraft carrying 113 tons of aid, including 25 tons of medicine and 5,000 blankets, landed in Cairo.

Morocco’s Ambassador to Egypt Ahmad Tazi received and supervised the transferring of the goods to twelve trucks, which transported the aid to the Gaza strip on Friday.

Medical staff from the Royal Armed Forces (FAR) also arrived in Gaza by buses to join the field hospital, built at the request of the sovereign. The King personally supervised the aid transport on May 29 at the Casablanca airport.

The hospital is equipped to handle vascular surgery, abdominal surgery, pediatrics, traumatology, ENT, and ophthalmology. Its medical unit has 97 staff, including 21 nurses and 13 doctors.

The King’s initiative is intended for the medical assistance of Gazans who suffered the May 14 massacre amid protests against the US embassy move to Jerusalem.

The Palestinian Grand Mufti of Al-Quds, Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, expressed his heartfelt appreciation for the King’s initiative, describing it as a brotherly gesture that will “mend the Palestinian wounds.”
