"Four trucks laden with medical supplies are heading to Gaza today (Sunday), and more aid will follow," secretary general of the 57-member bloc Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu told reporters in the Jordanian capital.

"The Security Council has failed to issue a resolution to condemn the killings of children," Ihsanoglu complained.
