Medications to arrive in Gaza Monday, PA says

June 16, 2011 4:42 P.M. (Updated: June 17, 2011 10:55 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Ten truckloads of medicine will enter the Gaza Strip on Sunday, officials in the coastal enclave told Ma'an on Thursday.

Nazmi Muhanna, head of the crossings committee in Gaza, said that instructions from President Mahmoud Abbas were handed down and necessary arrangements with Israel's Civil Administration and crossings officials were made to ensure that the goods were permitted to enter.

Israeli restrictions, poor coordination and the fragile status of the health care system in Gaza combined to create a medications shortage crisis, prompting the International Red Cross to open its warehouses earlier in the week and donate its stockpile to public hospitals.

"The first of the ten trucks will arrive Sunday," Muhanna said, with the remainder scheduled to arrive the following day.
