Cuba sends six tons of medical supplies to Gaza

Cuba has sent six tons of drugs and medical supplies to Gaza, devastated by Israel’s seven-week US-backed terror campaign that killed more than 2,100 people, official media reported Thursday.

The government-run Cubadebate website said the humanitarian shipment was delivered by officials at Cuba’s embassy in Cairo to the Palestinian representative there.

Cubadebate said Palestinian officials expressed their thanks for Havana’s “noble gesture” that “will alleviate the difficult situation Gaza is facing,” as hospitals continue to treat those injured by the Israeli bombings.

Israel and the Palestinians agreed to a truce on August 26, putting on hold their deadliest confrontation in years, with indirect talks set to resume mid-September.
