Morocco to Send Emergency Humanitarian Aid to Palestine

Rabat – King Mohammed VI has instructed the government of Morocco to send an emergency humanitarian aid to Palestine, the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced today.

The aid includes significant quantities of foodstuffs, medical supplies, and water, the ministry’s statement said.

“The details of sending this emergency aid will be coordinated with the Egyptian and Palestinian authorities,” the ministry said, stressing Morocco’s commitment to continue supporting the Palestinian cause.

Morocco has been following the situation in Gaza with concern and the country has strongly condemned the relentless Israeli bombardment targeting civilians across Gaza and the occupied West Bank.

The Moroccan government reiterated its concerns over the situation during the Cairo summit, which convened Arab leaders and some of their European counterparts on Saturday to discuss the increasingly alarming situation in Gaza.

Morocco’s Foreign Affairs Minister Nasser Bourita attended the summit, describing the situation in Gaza as “tragic and dangerous.”

He also reiterated Morocco’s readiness to coordinate with and assist all members and stakeholders of the international community to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

Bourita further stressed the need to protect civilians in accordance with international human rights law and to allow humanitarian aid to reach the affected population. 

Israeli occupation forces have been launching airstrikes throughout Gaza, killing at least 5, 000 and injuring tens of thousands. 

The Palestinian death toll reached 5,182 people as of today, medical sources told the Palestinian news agency Wafa.

Gaza has recorded the majority of fatalities from the continued Israeli aggression (5,087), including 2,055 children.

Yesterday alone, the Israeli army’s unrelenting bombing of the besieged Palestinian enclave claimed the lives of 436 people, including 182 children.
