In light of the current humanitarian crisis in Gaza Strip, the Humanitarian Action Office of the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development (AECID) donated a shipment of medical supplies to Egyptian hospitals where a number of Palestinian injured are receiving treatment.

The shipment, which arrived last week, consisted of 4.9 tons of oxygen concentrators, defibrillators, electrosurgical units, vital signs monitors and electric stretchers. It was prepared in coordination with the European Civil Protection Mechanism.


President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi received on November 24 at Al Ittihadia Palace the prime ministers of Spain and Belgium as the former is the current president of the European Union, while the latter will be the next one. The meeting was aimed at holding talks on the developments of military confrontations in Gaza Strip and the needed measures to settle the crisis.
