A ninth Saudi plane carrying relief supplies arrived at Al Arish Airport today, as part of the airlift ordered by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz to help Palestinians wounded by Israeli attacks.


The plane carried 12 tons of medicines and medical supplies to be shipped to Palestinians in the Gaza Strip via the Rafah border crossing.

Ministry of Health Spokesman Dr. Khalid Mirghalani announced yesterday, "Every morning, a Saudi relief aircraft will take off for Al Arish to deliver necessary medicines and treat injured Palestinians."
