BERLIN, September 11, 2014 – (WAFA) – Forty two Palestinian children wounded during Israel’s latest onslaught on the Gaza Strip arrived Thursday to the Federal Republic of Germany to receive medical treatment.
The Palestinian Embassy in Germany stated in a press statement that the children were transferred through coordination with the Association of Palestinian Physicians and Pharmacists in Berlin and Brandenburg and Friedensdorf Foundation, which has sponsored the provision of care and treatment throughout their stay.
The Embassy added that a medical crew from Gaza and Germany as well as the medical advisor of the Palestinian embassy in Egypt also accompanied the children.
The children were received by representatives from the Palestinian Embassy, Palestinian communities and union in Germany in addition to representatives of Friedensdorf Foundation and German hospitals which sponsored their medical treatment.
Many of these children sustained serious and complicated injuries and could not be treated in Gaza hospitals due to the inadequacy of medical equipment and supplies.
