Upon the arrival of the Etihad Airways flight from Al Arish International Airport to Zayed International Airport, medical teams swiftly transferred the wounded and those in need of immediate care to hospitals for treatment.

Sultan Mohammed Al Shamsi, Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs for Development Affairs and International Organisations at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, emphasised the UAE’s commitment to providing medical treatment and healthcare to the Palestinians from Gaza to alleviate the humanitarian suffering they are experiencing.

He also valued the efforts of the authorities, officials, and teams in the brotherly Arab Republic of Egypt for facilitating the transfer of the wounded and providing all forms of support to the UAE teams present in Al Arish.

The initiative is part of the ongoing efforts by the UAE at various levels to assist the fraternal people of Palestine and enhance the response to the humanitarian conditions witnessed by the Gaza Strip.
