MOSCOW, November 26. /TASS/. A plane of Russia’s Emergencies Ministry has delivered humanitarian aid for citizens of Palestine, the ministry’s official spokesman Alexander Drobyshevsky said on Wednesday.
“The Ilyushin II-76 plane of Russia’s Emergencies Ministry landed at the airport in the city of Amman. It carries 26 tons of humanitarian aid for the residents of Palestine,” the spokesman said.
In Jordan, the Russian humanitarian aid is later due to be handed over to the representatives of Palestine’s embassy. “The organized cooperation with authorized Jordanian charity organizations will allow the timely transfer of cargo to the Palestinian territory and its distribution among the local population,” Drobyshevsky said.
The humanitarian aid is provided in line with the Russian government’s decree following the request of Palestine’s authorities for sending medicines and medical equipment.
Healthcare institutions in the Gaza Strip experience severe shortages of medical supplies after Israel’s Protective Edge military operation, which was conducted between early July and late August 2014.
As many as 2,140 people were killed in the Palestinian enclave during this period and more than 11,000 injured. Over 50 days of the operation, the Israeli army hit in attacks from the air, sea and land 5,263 targets in Gaza.
