Egypt allows Turkish aid team to enter Gaza

A Turkish aid team arrived in Gaza on Monday after few days long prevention.

A Turkish aid team comprised of ten people arrived at the Gaza Strip on Monday.

Israel killed more than 1,300 Palestinians, a third of them children in the 22-day military aggression on Gaza and wounded 5,300 Palestinians, and Gaza infrastructure suffered massive damage totaling some 476 million dollars, according to Palestinian medics and officials.

The team, including doctors and a former lawmaker Suleyman Gunduz, have been kept at the Rafah border crossing for five days.

The Turkish team started to treat those injured in Israeli attacks on Gaza.

Gazans live under heavy Israel siege for a long time and Egypt still insists on not to opening the only Gaza border crossing in a move condemned by Muslims around the world in protests, leaving Gazans desperate to digging tunnels underground and risking their lives.

"People of Gaza need food, medicine and shelter, and all aid corridors should be opened," Gunduz told AA correspondent on the phone.

Gunduz said that the streets were full of demolished buildings, and the rubble had to be shifted away and wounds had to be healed.
