Kuwait Red Crescent Society sends medical team to Gaza Strip

The Kuwait Red Crescent Society announced the historic entry of a Kuwaiti medical delegation into the Gaza Strip, marking the first of its kind since the onset of the Israeli aggression last October.

Dr. Musaed Al-Enezi, head of operations at the KRCS and leader of the medical team, conveyed in a statement to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) that the team, comprising Kuwaiti consultants and surgeons, crossed into Gaza via the Rafah land crossing. Their mission is to provide essential medical assistance to the Palestinian people and support local medical teams.

Dr. Al-Enezi emphasized that the deployment of the Kuwaiti medical team was initiated under the directives of Kuwait’s political leadership and with the unwavering support of the Kuwaiti people for their Palestinian brethren. He underscored the significance of this humanitarian effort, highlighting that it is the first time Kuwaiti doctors have entered Gaza since the onset of the recent Israeli aggression.

The entry process was facilitated through coordination with Egyptian authorities and in collaboration with the Palestinian Red Crescent Society and Rahma Society. The team’s primary focus is to assist local medical personnel and conduct critical surgical operations for the most severely ill and injured patients.

In addition to the medical personnel the team brought along essential medical supplies and equipment to alleviate the strain on Gaza’s healthcare system which has been severely impacted by the Israeli blockade. Dr. Al-Enezi assured that Kuwait’s support and aid to Gaza will continue unabated.

Plans are also underway to establish a field hospital in Gaza, in coordination with the Egyptian Red Crescent, Palestinian Red Crescent, and local organizations. This hospital will feature multiple operating rooms and specialized medical equipment to cater to the healthcare needs of Palestinians in Gaza.

Dr. Al-Enezi expressed gratitude to all parties involved in facilitating the Kuwaiti team’s mission and extended appreciation to medical teams worldwide for their solidarity in supporting the Palestinian people, particularly in times of crisis.

The medical team, led by Dr. Musaed Al-Enezi, comprises four specialist doctors and an administrative coordinator. Their arrival in Al-Arish, northern Sinai, yesterday via a Kuwaiti Air Force transport plane marked the beginning of urgent medical relief efforts provided by Kuwait to the region.
