The Ministry of Social Affairs in the Gaza Strip will distribute the first package of Turkish aid, starting tomorrow. Safa News Agency reported that 10,000 Palestinian families would receive this aid, which includes food packages.

Yousef Ibrahim, Deputy of the Social Affairs Ministry, told Safa, “The first phase of distributing aid will kick off tomorrow, and a press conference is due to be attended by a Turkish delegation and various aid groups”.

Ibrahim noted that families consisting of 9-10 members and who are in need of aid would benefit from the distribution, stating, “We started with food packages lest it gets spoiled by the hot weather.”

Ibrahim said his ministry received 154 aid trucks, of which 120 will be distributed through the Ministry, and 34 through the Palestinian Red Crescent.

Ibrahim asserted that the second phase of aid distribution which includes toys, clothes and shoes would kick off around Eid Al -Adha, the Muslim holiday of sacrifice.

Sending aid to Gaza is part of the Israeli-Turkish reconciliation deal which includes building a power-plant and a water desalination facility in addition to allowing aid in to improve the conditions of the Palestinian population in the Gaza Strip.
