EU and Saudi aid for Gaza arrives in Egypt

Al-Arisch (AFP) – Ambulances and medical supplies funded by the European Union and Saudi Arabia are arriving at El-Arish airport in North Sinai, Egypt, for Gaza, where more than half of hospitals are no longer functional due to combat, damage or shortages. More than 12,000 have been killed in Gaza by Israel’s punishing air and ground offensive, according to the Hamas-run health ministry. Israel’s campaign was launched in response to Hamas’s October 7 attacks, which Israeli officials say killed about 1,200 people.
