Russia sends over 288 tons of humanitarian aid to Gaza

Moscow, Dec 5 (Prensa Latina) Russian Emergencies Ministry's aircraft have transferred more than 288 tons of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip residents, the Ministry's Spokesman Roman Okhotenko said on Tuesday.

The spokesman also told Sputnik that an estimated 12 flights were made by that Ministry’s aviation, whose cargo contained medicines, food, and other necessary products for the residents of the Gaza Strip.

Okhotenko added that a Ministry plane landed at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport with Russian citizens and their relatives evacuated from the Gaza Strip.

It was the first flight in December. Over 880 people, including more than 380 children, have been repatriated to Russia.

The new spiral of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has so far killed about 1,200 people and wounded nearly 5,500 in Israel. More than 16,000 deaths and 36,000 injured have occurred in Gaza, according to the latest official data. On Friday, Israeli troops resumed their attacks on the Gaza Strip, after the expiring of a humanitarian truce agreed a week ago, retaliating alleged shelling by Hamas militias.
