Italy to send aid to Gaza Strip via Israel

Aug. 5, 2014 6:40 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 6, 2014 1:11 P.M.)
ITALY (Ma'an) -- Italy is “determined” to send immediate support to the Gaza Strip, an Italian official in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

Marco Carnelos told the Palestinian ambassador in Italy May al-Kalia that a plane carrying 30 tons of supplies and aid will leave for Israel, from where they will be sent to Gaza.

The plane will be carrying 350,000 euros worth of tents, blankets, emergency supplies, water purifiers, food, health supplies and hygiene kits.

Carnelos added that Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Lapo Pistelli will deliver the supplies and aid to UNRWA via Israel.

Pistelli will arrive in Tel Aviv and “the supplies will arrive to Gaza as soon as possible,” Carnelos said.
