EL-ARISH (Ma’an) -- Head of the Egyptian Red Crescent Jaber Al-Arabi said Thursday that Egyptian authorities had allowed medical aid and food to enter Gaza via the Rafah crossing.

Three truckloads of medications were received by the Palestinian Red Crescent. They were donated by the Justice for Palestine Center in the UK.

“Egyptian authorities have allowed food aid and children’s milk into Gaza on the occasion of the month of Ramadan, the aid includes 1,200 boxes of five tons of children's milk that were donated by an Egyptian food company and were received by the Egyptian Red Crescent and transferred to Gaza via the Rafah crossing,” Al-Arabi told Ma'an.

Egypt had allowed large amounts of medications and medical goods into Gaza via the Rafah crossing on Wednesday.

Fifteen tonnes of medications were donated by the Egyptian Doctors Union, 60 tonnes of medications from the Islamic Relief Committee, and 100 tonnes of meat delivered by the Islamic Relief Committee and the government of New Zealand.
