GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Dozens of school children in Gaza City were hospitalized on Sunday after eating milk and biscuits distributed by the World Food Programme in coordination with the Gaza government Ministry of Education.

Gaza medical services spokesman Adham Abu Silmiyya said 40 pupils from the Abdul Malik Ibn Marwan School in the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood were transferred to the Ash-Shifa Hospital after complaining of nausea.

The majority were discharged after tests were conducted, except for three students who remain under medical supervision.

Gaza Education Minister Muhammad Asqoul said he received complaints of suspected food poisoning in two schools where the biscuits and milk were given to pupils and issued immediate directives to stop the distribution.
