CARACAS, August 13. /ITAR-TASS/. The government of Venezuela has sent a cargo of humanitarian aid to Palestine. A Lockheed C-130 Hercules transportation plane left for Egypt on Tuesday with 12 tons of food, medicines, clothes, footwear, and tents onboard.
Venezuelan Minister of Foreign Affairs Elias Jaua Milano said when speaking at the capital's Simon Bolivar international airport during the departure of the plane, "By sending this cargo, we perform our humanitarian duty to the Palestinian people who are subjected to bombardments in Gaza Strip". He told journalists that in two days' time the government of Venezuela would send another plane, this time with 15 tons of humanitarian cargo for Palestine onboard.
Israel's Protective Edge Operation in Gaza Strip had been launched on July 8. About 2,000 Palestinians have been killed during the military actions in the enclave and another 9,000 have been wounded. Sixty-four Israeli officers and soldiers have been killed in the fighting. Another three civilians were killed on the Israeli territory as a result of rocket bombardments.
