Venezuela to send humanitarian aid to Gaza via PA

Dec. 21, 2013 1:14 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 22, 2013 5:46 P.M.)
CARACAS (Ma'an) -- The government of Venezuela is to send $100 million in humanitarian aid to Gaza via the Palestinian Authority in order to help the Strip's suffering civilian population in the wake of winter storm Alexa.

The Venezuelan move was the result of intensive efforts taken by the Palestinian ministry of foreign affairs to obtain aid for Gazans, the ministry said, after the besieged coastal enclave was hit by a heavy winter storm that caused widespread flooding, cut already-limited power supplies, and displaced between 10,000 and 40,000 people.

Following the storm, Palestinian ambassador to Venezuela Linda Suboh appealed to Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and his foreign minister Elias Jaua, the statement said.
