The Palestinian Authority Ministry of Health on Wednesday shipped medical supplies and equipment to the Gaza Strip, Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah said.
Speaking at a news conference in Ramallah, Hamdallah told reporters that all Palestinian people stand with Gaza and "we will remain united until we end your suffering and establish an independent Palestinian state."
The shipment, which is thought to be worth around six million shekels ($1,729,900), contains medicine for cancer, diabetes, and dialysis machines.
