CAIRO: The organisers of Malaysia’s humanitarian mission to Gaza are looking at bringing over 100 Palestinian victims to Malaysia for treatment.
The mission is currently in Cairo awaiting the release of all its medical supplies by the Egyptian government.
“The Egyptians are just doing their job as they are worried that we might be smuggling in items which can be converted into weapon parts, thus the inspection,” said mission leader Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim.
He said this after visiting the Palestine Hospital in Cairo on Wednesday and meeting nine Palestinian medical evacuees warded there.
The mission also handed over a ventilator worth RM35,000 to the hospital, donated by the National Heart Institute (IJN).
“We are doing further medical emergency and mass casualty needs assessment in Cairo and working with both the Egyptian Red Crescent and the Egyptian Health Ministry,” said medical team leader Datuk Dr Alwi Abdul Rahman.
