Two Egyptian aid convoys to Gaza carrying fuel and medicines

Three vehicles carrying 150 tons of diesel fuel and gasoline left the Egyptian Suez province, on Tuesday morning, towards Gaza through Rafah commercial crossing, aiming at ending the fuel shortage crisis in the Gaza Strip.

Sources told the Egyptian newspaper "Al-yawm assabi" (The seventh day) that the three vehicles moved towards Gaza under the guard of the military police forces, under the Egyptian attempts to end the Palestinian suffering from the lack of gasoline, diesel fuel and electricity, pointing out that this fuel was donated to Gaza by the Cooperative Petroleum Association based in Al-zitiat port in Suez.

The sources added that despite the fuel crisis in the Egyptian market, six other vehicles will also leave on Wednesday the same port towards the Palestinian territories and will be heading to Gaza hospitals.

For his part, Major General Jaber Al-Arabi, the Secretary General of the North Sinai Governorate and the Chairman of Red Cross, said that there are four other trucks carrying drugs left the Rafah crossing heading to Gaza, donated by Arab Doctors Union.

Major General al-Arabi added, in a press release, that the trucks were carrying 13 tons of medicines and medical supplies to cover the deficit in the Gaza strip and that the entry procedures of the medicines to Gaza are still ongoing.
