Turkish, Egyptian health ministers discuss aid for Gaza, transfer of cancer patients to Türkiye


Turkish Health Minister Fahrettin Koca met his Egyptian counterpart Khaled Abdel Ghaffar in Cairo on Wednesday to discuss aid supply to Gaza and the transfer of cancer patients to Türkiye.

Koca arrived in Egyptian capital earlier in the day and was received by Abdel Ghaffar and other officials.

Last week, Koca held phone calls with his Israeli and Egyptian counterparts for the transfer of patients in the besieged Palestinian enclave through the Rafah border crossing.

A coordination team was thus formed, with contact persons from Türkiye, Egypt and Israel.

Türkiye has delivered tons of aid equipment, including medicine, medical devices, ambulances and medical supplies, for the people of Gaza, where the humanitarian situation is dire due to Israeli assault since the Oct. 7 attack by Hamas.
