King Mohammed VI personally chaired, supervised and kicked off, Tuesday at Casablanca international airport, the operation to deliver humanitarian aid to the brotherly Palestinian people.
This operation includes the setting up of a field hospital of the Royal Armed Forces (FAR), the granting of blankets and a batch of essential medicines, as well as the provision of food aid by the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity.
The hospital, which will be set up in the Gaza Strip, will provide medical care to the Palestinians victims of recent events, as well as to the entire population of the area. It includes the specialties required by the population and adapted to its needs such as vascular and visceral surgery, traumatology, pediatrics, ENT and ophthalmology, etc.
The food aid of the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity is diversified and includes essential products particularly consumed in this holy month of Ramadan. This aid, which will benefit the populations of Gaza, Al-Quds and Ramallah, amounts to 113 tons. 5000 blankets will also be sent for the benefit of the same populations.
This action testifies to the natural and historical solidarity of HM the King and the Moroccan people towards the Palestinian populations.
