Injured Palestinians, hurt in the Israeli offensive against the Gaza strip, have been evacuated to Egypt.
Dozens of wounded Palestinians have been given permission to leave Gaza by the Rafah crossing. But they were forced to change ambulances for the change of country. They represent just a small portion of the people reported to have been injured in the bombings. Egypt is assuring a humanitarian corridor into and out of Gaza. Arab countries have been sending aid. The Red Cross is trying to get medical supplies to the hospitals within the Gaza Strip where conditions are said to be dire. The Red Cross used the word chaos with huge numbers of seriously injured people. A Palestinian boat called ‘Dignity’, which has been shuttling between the Gaza Strip and Cyprus for some months, is to attempt to get four tons of medical supplies to the Gaza Strip despite an Israeli ban.
