GAZA, (Alresalah.ps) --Gaza has been accustomed to receive Egyptian security delegations over the past months, regarding following up security and political situation.
But this week Gaza received a medical delegation to heal the wounds of Palestinian children as well as the relationship between Gaza and Egypt.
Officials from the Palestinian health ministry in the Gaza Strip on Saturday received members of an Egyptian medical delegation after they entered through the Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing.
For the first time in years, the delegation, led by Dr. Mahmoud Fathi Saleh, a consultant ophthalmologist, will stay in Gaza for one week to conduct a number of surgical operations.
Dr. Mahmoud Fathi Saleh, told the "Alresalah" during his visit to the Gaza European Hospital in the southern Gaza Strip that the delegation's message is to stress that the Egyptian people stand by the Palestinian people in all circumstances and crises.
According to the health ministry, the delegation’s visit comes within the framework of promoting cooperation with the brothers in Egypt and the ongoing efforts to provide health care for Gaza patients.
The health crisis is deteriorating due to Israeli blockade on Gaza Strip and electricity shortage.
