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.
