The aid group is waiting for permission from Israeli authorities and international institutions to dispatch two containers of emergency medicine and medical equipment from Turkey to Gaza.
Red Crescent head Kerem Kinik told Anadolu Agency on Monday that they faced serious bureaucratic obstacles for the shipment of these medicines.
The Red Crescent also plans to give food support to 30,000 families in the region.
At least 59 Palestinians were martyred and hundreds more injured by Israeli forces along the Gaza border on Monday amid protests marking the Nakba anniversary and the relocation of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Turkish Health Minister Ahmet Demircan on Tuesday said at the parliament Ankara is taking initiatives to bring the wounded Palestinians to Turkey.
