Seventeen Palestinian wounded in the Gaza Strip during Operation Protective Edge will be flown to Turkey on Wednesday to receive medical treatment.

 

 

The wounded will be taken in Red Crescent ambulances to the Erez border crossing, and then moved to Israeli Magen David Adom ambulances to be taken to Ben Gurion Airport. They will then travel to Turkey in a Turkish Air Force transport plane.

This was done with the help of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories and the Foreign Ministry and under their approval.

 

The wounded's condition is unclear, but three of them appear to be in serious condition, while the rest are in light and moderate conditions. Magen David Adom sent 19 ambulances to the Erez crossing to transport the wounded.

Palestinian patients are routinely transported from the Gaza Strip to receive treatment elsewhere. In an average month, Magen David Adom transports some 100 patients from Gaza to Israel.

 

While there was no transport of Palestinian patients into Israel during Operation Protective Edge, there were some incidents in which Palestinian ambulances took Gaza wounded to Jordan under Israeli approval.
