UAE pledges $25 million in aid to Gaza
The Emirati Red Crescent will supervise delivery of the aid
The United Arab Emirates pledged $25 million in humanitarian aid Thursday to "support the steadfastness" of Palestinians in Gaza where Israeli strikes have killed more than 70 people in three days.
The Emirati Red Crescent will supervise delivery of the aid, WAM state news agency said, adding that the aid organization will also set up a field hospital in Gaza "to help the victims of the Israeli aggression".
Israel launched Operation Protective Edge on Tuesday, aimed at halting cross-border rocket fire from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.
