A shipment of humanitarian aid from Slovakia should reach the Palestinian town of Nablus by the beginning of December. Humanitarian medical supplies worth €287,030 from the stocks of the State Material Reserves and the Health Ministry received customs clearance on Tuesday, November 16, and are already on their way to the Palestinian territories.
Slovakia has sent more than 2,000 items, mostly sterilisers, surgical drills, parts for medical equipment and protective aprons. The aid will be sent to Ashdod in Israel and subsequently to Nablus in the Palestinian territories. “We estimate it could reach Palestine at the end of November or early December,” Natália Hattalová of the Interior Ministry told the SITA newswire.
