The Palestinian government committee to break the siege has said that 39 Egyptian and Arab doctors have been allowed access into Gaza on January 10 along with 11 trucks loaded with medicine. The committee in a statement on January 11 said that the Gaza hospitals were in dire need of medicine and medical equipment.

Alaa Al-Batta, the committee’s spokesman, said that five ambulance vehicles were also allowed access, and added that they were sent as a gift from Algeria, Libya and the union of Arab doctors. He noted, however, that no foodstuffs were allowed into the Strip via Rafah, and asked the Egyptian authority to open the crossing on permanent basis.

Batta asked Cairo to expedite the entry of medical and food assistance that is currently waiting at the crossing to alleviate the suffering of the people and the wounded as a result of the ongoing “Zionist terrorist aggression on the Strip”.
