The Kuwait Red Crescent Society announced the entry of a Kuwaiti medical delegation affiliated with the Society, the first of its kind, to the Gaza Strip since the outbreak of the Israeli aggression on Gaza on the seventh of last October.

The head of operations at the Kuwaiti Red Crescent and the head of the medical team, Dr. Musaed Al-Enezi, said in a press statement that the team consisting of Kuwaiti consultants and surgeons entered Gaza through the Rafah land crossing in order to provide a helping hand to the Palestinian brothers and support the Palestinian medical teams in Gaza.

He explained that sending the Kuwaiti medical team to the Gaza Strip came under the directives of the political leadership and with the support of the Kuwaiti people for their Palestinian brother, stressing that the Kuwaiti Red Crescent medical team is the first team made up of Kuwaiti doctors to arrive in the Gaza Strip since the start of the Israeli aggression.

Al-Enezi added that the entry process took place in coordination with the relevant authorities in the Arab Republic of Egypt and in coordination with the Palestinian Red Crescent Society and Rahma Society around the world, explaining that the team’s mission is focused on assisting medical personnel in Palestinian hospitals and performing delicate surgical operations for critically ill and injured cases.
He stressed that the team entered the Gaza Strip accompanied by medical aid, materials, equipment and supplies to support the health system in hospitals in Gaza, which suffers from a severe shortage of basic medical equipment as a result of the Israeli blockade, stressing that Kuwaiti contributions and aid to the brothers in Gaza will not stop.
He stated that the medical team will perform a large number of surgical operations on the Palestinian brothers in the coming days, expressing his hope that the team will contribute to alleviating the suffering of the brothers in the Gaza Strip.
He revealed arrangements to establish a field hospital in the Gaza Strip in coordination with the Egyptian Red Crescent, the Palestinian Red Crescent, and local organizations in the Strip, explaining that the hospital will include a large number of operating rooms and specialized medical equipment to help the Palestinian brothers in Gaza during the next stage.
He expressed his thanks to all parties that contributed to facilitating the tasks of the Kuwaiti team or any other medical teams that came from all countries of the world to support the Palestinian people in Gaza and alleviate the suffering of the wounded, especially children, women and the elderly.
He expressed confidence that medical teams will come in succession, whether from the State of Kuwait or from countries around the world, to stand by the Palestinian people who are subjected to a siege and military aggression from a brutal Israeli occupation force that has affected all means of life in the Gaza Strip.
