The Gulf emirate of Qatar will on Sunday send seven doctors, two nurses and medical equipment to Gaza to treat Palestinians wounded in clashes with Israel, an official spokesman announced.
One of the doctors would fly back to Qatar with 12 Palestinians who are to be treated in Doha, the rest would remain on the Gaza Strip for an unspecified length of time, the health ministry spokesman said.
