CAIRO — Oman Charitable Organisation (OCO) in co-ordination with the Sultanate’s Embassy in Egypt sent a shipment of medical aid to Gaza Strip within the framework of the Sultanate’s efforts to lessen the blockade on Palestinian brothers in the enclave.

Shaikh Khalifa bin al Harthy, Sultanate’s Ambassador to Egypt and its permanent representative to the Arab League, said in a statement that the medical aid to our brothers in Gaza Strip comes within the framework of the Sultanate’s policy to support Palestinian case and to help the Palestinian brothers who suffer unbearable conditions under the Israeli occupation.

He also said the Sultanate previously contributed to the treatment of several Palestinian patients in Egyptian hospitals. He added that a delegation from OCO accompanied by a diplomat from the Sultanate’s Embassy in Cairo will soon head to Gaza Strip to follow up the charitable projects being currently carried out by the Sultanate in Gaza Strip.
