CAIRO, (PIC)– A humanitarian and medical aid shipment supplied by the United Arab Emirates arrived in Cairo on Monday and was delivered to UNRWA to distribute the assistance in Gaza Strip in the few coming days.

UAE ambassador to Egypt Mohammed Al-Dhaheri said in a press statement on Monday night that the convoy targets alleviating consequences of the Israeli siege on the Strip.

He said that the convoy includes 35 trucks and trailers with 500 tons of foodstuff and medications that would be handed to the Palestinian Red Crescent representatives at the Rafah crossing.

“This is the sixth aid convoy to our Palestinian brothers and falls in line with the UAE leadership’s directives to help in alleviating the Palestinian people’s suffering”, Dhaheri elaborated.
