GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A South African medical team arrived in Gaza on Sunday to assist in the treatment of thousands of Palestinians injured in Israel's 51-day assault on the Strip.

In a news conference at al-Shifa hospital, the director of the Gift of the Givers Foundation said the team consisted of 10 doctors with various specializations.

The team will spend two weeks in Gaza, Dr. Imtiaz Suleiman said.

He added that the World Health Organization had sent medical supplies which were currently en route to the Strip via Egypt.

Approximately 11,000 Palestinians were injured in Israel's seven-week offensive on Gaza, according to the Ministry of Health.
