Israel transfers Turkish medical supplies to Gaza

Bandaging, medicine donated by Turkey enters Strip through Erez crossing; COGAT Spokesman: Efforts of this kind made on a daily basis.

Israel on Thursday transferred a truckload of medical supplies, bandaging and medicine donated by the Turkish Red Crescent. The supplies entered Israel through the Allenby Bridge from Jordan and were sent through the Erez crossing into the Strip.

The Coordinator of Government Activity in the Territories (COGAT) Maj.-Gen. Eitan Dangot authorized the transfer of medical equipment and medicine to Gaza Strip hospitals, sent as part of activities conducted by Turkish humanitarian organizations.

The COGAT spokesperson said of the transfer, "Efforts of this kind are made on a basis in all levels and areas," including health, education, agriculture and infrastructure. The statement noted that the Turkish authorities operate "in full coordination and in adherence to the appropriate procedures."

There has been a shortage of medicine in the Strip in days due to an internal dispute in the Palestinian medical system, Israel Radio reported.

However, the COGAT, in a press release, stressed that the delivery of Turkish aid is completely normative and takes place on a daily basis. The deliver, it said, "is not a result of the medicine crisis in Gaza."
