BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel has held up medical supplies for the Gaza Strip at a checkpoint since Thursday morning, the Palestinian Authority said on Thursday night.

PA Health Minister Hani Abdeen told Ma'an the Ramallah-based government had sent 15 trucks with 200 boxes of medicine and medical supplies to the Gaza Strip.

"We sent the first batch of medications this morning and it’s now waiting at Israeli checkpoints for permission to pass to Gaza," Abdeen said.

The minister said international organizations had promised to help the PA get Israeli permission to deliver medicine to the Gaza Strip.
