The aid includes medicines and other medical supplies, foodstuffs and fuel for the operation of hospital generators in Gaza Strip.

Based on the directives of the Emir, Chairman of the National Committee for the Reconstruction of Gaza HE Ambassador Mohammed bin Ismail al Emadi will supervise aid distribution in Gaza according to Gaza Reconstruction Mechanism (GRM), in coordination with the United Nations.
Equipment will also be delivered through Karm Abu Salem Crossing.
Qatar renewed its commitment to support the Palestinian people and move forward with the reconstruction projects in Gaza Strip so as to promote peace and stability.
The Emir was told about the critical humanitarian conditions of the people of Gaza and the lack of fuel resulting in the closure of several hospitals and clinics during a telephone a conversation with Dr Ismail Haniyeh, head of the political bureau of the Islamic Resistance Movement in Palestine (Hamas), on Thursday.
The Emir reaffirmed Haniyeh Qatar's constant support to the Palestinian people.
The Emir reiterated that Qatar will carry on its reconstruction projects in Gaza and that it is working to provide the necessary fuel required for different sectors.
