BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – The office of the coordinator of Israeli government activities in the territories Yoav Mordechai announced Sunday that Israel decided to open a field hospital at Erez crossing Sunday.
It will receive Palestinian men, women, children and elderly people injured during the ongoing fighting in Gaza.
