JERUSALEM: Israel’s military says wounded Palestinians in Gaza were transferred to Jordan for medical treatment and that Jordanian trucks packed with medical supplies have entered the territory.
It said the moves were made upon the request of the King of Jordan.
The wounded, Gaza residents with Jordanian citizenship along with relatives, were transferred in three Jordanian ambulances.
Gaza’s Health Ministry said that 23 protesters were wounded Monday by live bullets and tear gas, but did not provide a breakdown of the number.
Israel’s military said it will continue to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza. Earlier this week Israel delivered 53 tons of medical equipment along with other aid to Gaza.
