The Kuwait Red Crescent Society has announced that it has sent a transport aircraft loaded with medical supplies to the Gaza Strip. KRCS Chairman Barjas Al-Barjas said that the plane took off on Tuesday with vital medical supplies for 400 Palestinian children suffering from renal failure in Gaza. The supplies will enter Gaza from Egypt through the Rafah border crossing.
Mr. Al-Barjas added that the supplies will be delivered to the Human Rights Committee in the Gaza Strip, under the supervision of the KRCS. He stressed that his Society is ready to exert every effort to guarantee the delivery of aid to Gaza to ease the suffering of the Palestinian people under Israel's ongoing blockade.
"Kuwait has a duty to provide this assistance to the Palestinian people, especially in light of the tragic situation witnessed in Gaza," said the KRCS Chairman. He noted that the relief consignment was sent on the direct instructions of Kuwait's ruler, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.
