Saudi King Abdullah orders immediate assistance to the Palestinian Red Crescent in Gaza worth more than $50 million
Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud ordered on Sunday immediate assistance to the Palestinian Red Crescent in Gaza worth more than $50 million, according to the kingdom’s state run news agency.
Finance Minister Dr. Ibrahim bin Abdulaziz Al-Assaf, in a statement to the Saudi Press Agency, said the king had issued a directive to provide the Palestinian Red Crescent in Gaza with 200 million Saudi Riyals.
The minister said that the amount was allocated “for immediate needs of medicines and medical equipment and supplies necessary to treat the victims of the Israeli attacks against the Gaza Strip which claimed the lives of thousands of innocent children, women, elderly and people of special needs.”
Israel has launched daily attacks on the Gaza Strip since Tuesday, in what it has described as part of an operation to halt cross-border rocket fire by militant groups.
