A first aid station was opened in Gaza’s Karara town on Sunday with help from the Turkish Red Crescent, Palestinian officials said.

During the opening ceremony, Karara Mayor Abdurrahim al-Ibadile thanked the Turkish Red Crescent for financing the project, which cost around $10,000.

Karara was heavily bombarded by Israel during the 2014 Gaza war.

The town, which is near the border with Israel, saw Israeli tanks enter its borders at the time.
