CAIRO - 20 May 2018: A Palestinian delegation led by Diab al-Louh, the Palestinian ambassador in Egypt and permanent delegate to the Arab League, visited on Sunday a number of Palestinians who were injured in the Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip and were sent to the Naser Institute Hospital in Egypt for treatment.

Louh delivered Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ greetings to the brave injured, stressing that the embassy will do its best to ensure providing good treatment for them until their full recovery.

Since the Gaza rallies began on March 30, more than 100 Palestinian demonstrators have been martyred by the Israeli army.

The Palestinian ambassador extended his gratitude for Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi for his decision to open the Rafah border crossing throughout the holy month of Ramadan to ease the burden on the besieged people in Gaza.




“I issued directives to take the necessary measures to keep the Rafah border crossing open throughout the holy month of Ramadan in a bid to relieve some of the burdens suffered by our brothers in the Gaza strip,” the Egyptian leader posted on Facebook and Twitter.

Minister of Health, Ahmed Emad Eddine, has been "instructed by the political leadership" to receive the Palestinians injured during the Israeli aggression and treat them in Egyptian hospitals.

This crossing is mainly specialized for individual movements across borders, and was being prepared for the transfer of goods between the two courtiers. The importance of Rafah border crossing increased after Israeli forces destroyed the Yasser Arafat International Airport in 2001; which was the only airport allowing Palestinians to travel.

On Friday, Egypt dispatched humanitarian aid, food, relief and medical supplies to Gaza under the slogan “Together against Terrorism”.

Gaza residents have posted photos of President Sisi, thanking him for opening the Rafah crossing for the duration of Ramadan to help facilitate their needs.

Palestinians raised photos and banners of Sisi, with phrases such as "Thank you Egypt" and "Long live Egypt" printed on them.

Last September, Hamas announced the dissolution of its administrative committee in the Gaza Strip, inviting the Government of National Reconciliation to assume its duties and hold general elections. The movement affirmed it would comply with the Social Reconciliation Accord signed in 2011.

Since signing the agreement between Fatah and Hamas, several Egyptian delegations have been visiting Gaza, and vice versa, in order to coordinate in implementing all of the agreement points and articles; however, a few points still need further discussions between the Palestinian parties.

President Abbas said that there is no country as vital to the Palestinian cause as Egypt due to its historical and political position in the region. “Egypt has an opinion, a position and an interest in the Palestinian cause,” said Abbas.
