PA health ministry to ship 20 truckloads of medicine to Gaza

June 25, 2014 7:06 P.M. (Updated: June 26, 2014 5:23 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Authority Ministry of Health will ship 20 truckloads of medicine and medical equipment to Gaza this week, a minister said.

Jawad Awwad, minister of health, said all preparations to ship the cargo have been finalized to ease the "suffering of our people."

Spokesman for Gaza's health ministry Ashraf al-Qidra said the shipment comes as health conditions in Gaza continue to deteriorate as a result of shortages.

Several hospitals have had to cancel all non-emergency surgeries due to a lack of medical equipment.

The Gaza Strip has been under a severe economic blockade imposed by Israel since 2006, leading to frequent humanitarian crises.
