Gaza war injured to receive treatment in Slovenia

Sept. 27, 2011 10:15 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 27, 2011 10:18 A.M.)
JERICHO (Ma’an) -- A group of Palestinian children who were injured during Israel's Operation Cast Lead in 2008-9 were transferred Tuesday from the West Bank en route to Slovenia for treatment, officials said.

Medhat Taha, an advisor to President Mahmoud Abbas for medical cases, said the 10 children were injured during Israel's assault on Gaza. The delegation includes 10 cases of amputation and paralysis.

Meanwhile, the Salama charity association for rehabilitation of disabled and wounded arranged paperwork so eight other children could depart Gaza via the Erez crossing to join the delegation receiving care abroad.

The chairman of the board of directors, Muhammad Maqadma, praised Slovenia for its efforts in helping the wounded and disabled Palestinians. Representatives of the delegations thanked Abbas for his assistance.
