RAMALLAH (Ma’an) – The Palestinian ministry of health on Thursday shipped eight truckloads of medicines and medical requirements to the ministry’s stores in the Gaza Strip to help hospitals and medical centers in the coastal enclave cope with the ongoing Israeli military offensive.

Five more truckloads have been prepared to be shipped Friday.

A spokesman of the ministry in the West Bank, Osama al-Najjar, told Ma’an that Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah and Minister of Health Jawad Awwad gave instructions to ship as much medicines as possible to Gaza.

He explained that the shipment included medicines for chronic diseases, cancer medicines, kidney medicines, arterial solutions, blood sacks, lab material and other daily use material.

Director of the ministry’s stores Salih Thawabtah highlighted that eight truckloads were loaded from stores in Ramallah and Nablus and headed to Gaza in the morning. Five other truckloads have been prepared and would leave to Gaza Friday morning.
