France Provides Medical Aid to Palestinian Children in Gaza by Opening Hospitals


Nov 20, 2023

French President Emmanuel Macron has announced that France is ready to receive sick or injured Palestinian children in its hospitals in the Gaza Strip. To support this effort, he confirmed the sending of a new plane with ten tons of medical material and the deployment of a second medical ship to support humanitarian efforts in the area. During a telephone conversation with Egyptian President Abdel Fattá al Sisi, Macron emphasized France’s commitment to helping evacuate injured or sick children from the Gaza Strip and called for international cooperation to fight terrorism. Both leaders highlighted the importance of finding urgent solutions to the current crisis and launching a comprehensive political process to achieve a just solution for the Palestinian cause. In addition, Macron stated that releasing hostages held by Hamas is a priority for France following an attack on October 7 that left nearly 1,200 dead and some 240 kidnapped. The situation has escalated with thousands of deaths reported primarily in the Gaza Strip and Palestinians dying at the hands of Israeli security forces and settlers in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Overall, Macron’s statement conveys France’s commitment to providing humanitarian aid and medical support to those affected by the ongoing conflict in Palestine.
