Turkey offers to take in wounded Gazans

JERUSALEM – Turkey says it is prepared to take in wounded Palestinians after Israeli fire killed dozens and wounded hundreds during Monday's Gaza border protests.


Speaking Tuesday, Health Minister Ahmet Demircan said Turkey's emergency agency and the military had prepared an "air bridge" to transport wounded Gazans and were waiting for negotiations to conclude.


He says the wounded are at high risk due to insufficient health care in Gaza, which has been under an Israeli-Egyptian blockade for more than 10 years. Demircan's comments were carried by Turkey's official Anadolu news agency.
