China announces humanitarian aid including food, medicine to Gaza
The Chinese government will provide another batch of emergency humanitarian assistance of 15 million yuan (about $2.05 million), including food and medicine, to Gaza, said Xu Wei, spokesman for the China International Development Cooperation Agency on Thursday.
China is saddened by the fact that the Palestinian-Israeli conflict has resulted in a large number of civilian casualties and a significant deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Gaza, Xu said.
To help alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, China has already provided $1 million in cash through the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East and the Palestinian National Authority separately, Xu said.
