The 18th group of wounded Palestinian children and cancer patients and those accompanying them, arrived today in the UAE, in line with the directives of President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan to provide medical treatment for 1,000 injured children and 1,000 cancer patients from the Gaza Strip at the UAE’s hospitals.

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

He noted that the wise leadership’s directives to provide all forms of support in the field of healthcare came within this framework, especially with the complete collapse of health services in the Strip.
