BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel has authorized a transfer of medical equipment from Turkey to a hospital in the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian Authority official said Monday.
PA Minister of Civil Affairs, Hussein al-Sheikh, told Ma'an that his office submitted an application to Israel over a year ago to request a transfer of Turkish medical equipment.
Israel officially authorized the request on Monday.
The Turkish Friendship Hospital was built in 2013 after Israel agreed to allow Turkey to transfer construction material.
