For the twelfth consecutive day, Egypt has allowed the wounded from Israel’s recent bombings in Gaza and their companions to enter, as well as people stranded on either sides of the border, Youm7 daily reported.

To this end, medical teams and ambulances are still mobilized in the area. They classify the wounded and take the most serious cases to Egyptian hospitals.

The measure also complies with President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi’s guidelines of continuing sending humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, which started soon after the ceasefire was agreed upon between Israel and the Palestinian movement Hamas.

Since then, hundreds of trucks laden with containers have arrived in the neighboring territory, carrying more than 3,000 tons of food, drugs, clothes, sheets, mattresses, construction and plumbing materials and other much-needed supplies to be given to the victims of Israel’s attacks.

Several state and civilian organizations are taking part in the donations, such as the Tahya Misr Fund, which, for the first time, is expanding its operations outside the nation and will provide the 500 million dollars promised by the Egyptian president for the reconstruction of Gaza.
