ISTANBUL, (PIC)-- A Tunisian plane, loaded with 14 tons of medical supplies and food items for Gaza, took off from Carthage Airport on Friday evening heading for Egypt.
The Tunisian authorities had already flown last month 16 tons of medical and food supplies to Gaza through Egypt.
The transfer of aid supplies for Gaza take place under the supervision of the Tunisian presidency and is supported by the Tunisian association for cooperation and social networking and the Tunisian Red Cross.
A pro-Gaza celebration rally was held by The Tunisian trade union on Friday in protest at the Israeli war on Gaza.
Speakers at the rally called on the international community, the UN, the security council and the world's pro-Palestinian pressure groups to work on ensuring a permanent ceasefire in Gaza and curbing Israel's crimes against the civilians in Gaza.
In a related context, Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country is ready to provide urgent physical and psychological treatment for all the Palestinian victims who have been wounded in the massive Israeli attacks launched for more than a month in Gaza.
"In case our efforts being made in this regard work out, we will start immediately to evacuate the wounded casualties to our hospitals in Anakara and Istanbul" Erdogan stated.
