Donated books to enter Gaza in the coming days

Nov. 23, 2009 4:48 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 24, 2009 1:37 A.M.)
Gaza – Ma'an – A consignment of books and stationary will arrive in the Gaza Strip in the coming days, The Qatar Foundation announced on Monday.

The Qatar Foundation, in conjunction with the Jordan Hashemite Charity, will deliver 18 trucks containing 250 tons of books and stationary to the Gaza Strip worth an estimated 10 million Qatari riyals, according to a news release issued by the organization.

Qatar’s ambassador to Jordan, Mane Abdel Hadi Al-Hajery applauded the efforts of the Jordan Hashemite Charity in overcoming the significant difficulties associated with sending aid to Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, additionally commending Palestinians that have contributed to the implementation of the project, which focuses on supporting education in Gaza.

The statement added that Al-Hajery paid tribute to the admirable initiatives undertaken by The Qatar Foundation in support of the Palestinian people through development projects in the fields of education and health.

The Qatar Foundation began its project six months prior by ensuring that the necessary permits for the consignment were in place and that Palestinians in Gaza would receive access to the books and stationary upon its arrival.

Al-Hajery, accompanied by numerous officials from the Qatari and Jordanian organizations, inspected the trucks in Jordan before they made way to Gaza.

Meanwhile, Israeli authorities opened the Kerem Shalom and Karni crossings in Gaza on Monday, while Nahal Oz remained closed, to allow between 108-118 truckloads of commercial merchandise and humanitarian aid, in addition to trucks carrying 600 calves for the Muslim Eid Al-Adha holiday and 95 truckloads of wheat and fodder, according to Palestinian crossings official Raed Fattuh.
