In the framework of the State of Israel’s humanitarian activity, Magen David Adom (MDA) is working on an ongoing basis to transfer the ill and the wounded from the Gaza Strip to hospitals in Israel for medical treatment.
This afternoon (Wednesday, 13 August 2014), in full cooperation with the Foreign Ministry, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories and the Turkish Red Crescent, MDA crews evacuated 18 wounded Palestinians (one in serious condition, four in moderate condition and 13 with light injuries) and 16 escorts from Erez Crossing to Ben-Gurion International Airport where they boarded a Turkish plane that took them for treatment at a hospital in Ankara.
