BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian minister of Civil Affair Hussein al-Sheikh said the PA would send civil defense forces and equipment to the Gaza Strip to help remove rubble caused by the Israeli assault.

Al-Sheikh told Ma'an that Israel agreed to let de-mining, explosive disposal equipment and large bulldozers into Gaza to help remove the rubble. It will also allow the entrance of civil defense workers into Gaza, he said.

Al-Sheikh added that Turkey would send a large ship with multiple generators to generate electricity for Gaza Strip; the proposal however is still pending Israel’s approval.
