Morocco, on King’s instructions, sends 40 tons of medical supplies via land route to Gaza

king Mohammed VI, Chairman of Al Quds Committee, ordered the delivery of 40 tons of medical aid to Gaza, in solidarity with Palestinians in the war-torn strip, Morocco’s foreign ministry said in a statement.

The shipment will follow the same unprecedented land route as the aid sent in March.

In March, Morocco was the first nation to use the Kerem Shalom border crossing to send aid to Gazans.

The aid consists of 40 tons of medical products, in particular, equipment for treating burns and surgical and traumatological emergencies, as well as essential medicines, the Ministry said adding that these medical products are destined to adults and children.

The King paid for a large portion of the aid, the statement said.

The large-scale humanitarian operations benefiting the Palestinian populations confirm the effective commitment, personal involvement, and constant concern of King Mohammed VI in favor of the Palestinian Cause, and is part of a long tradition of active solidarity with Palestine.

It also evidences the effectiveness of the Al-Quds Committee and Bayt Mal Al Quds, propelled by a vision of peace and focused on effective and concrete support for the Palestinians.

Besides, the Shipment of the aid via land shows that the resumption of relations with Israel serves peace and the interests of the Palestinian people and demonstrates, if need be, that Morocco has always used its leverage and networks to promote the interests of the Palestinians and peace for all the peoples of the region, contrary to Algeria which voices verbal indignation without undertaking any tangible solidarity act. Algerians loudly proclaim their hollow slogans, words overbidding but take no practical action to genuinely back the Palestinians.
