Russia to continue contacts with Palestine, Israel, Egypt on Gaza aid – Kremlin

Moscow, (UNI) Russia will continue contacts with Palestine, Israel and Egypt on the issue of delivering humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, but situation remains difficult for now, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.

The Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations has said that two special flights has delivered 60 tonnes of humanitarian cargo for residents of the Gaza Strip, including food and personal care products.

Peskov told reporters that many other countries also provide humanitarian assistance to Palestinians.

“Unfortunately, as of now, a very limited amount of aid can be delivered there and only through the territory of Egypt, only through the Rafah checkpoint, which operates in a very limited mode and, unfortunately, aid in the required amount simply cannot be delivered there now. But of course, the Russian side will continue all contacts with the Palestinians, the Israelis, and the Egyptians in order to further seek the opportunity to ensure the direction of such assistance,” Peskov said.

The spokesman added that contacts with Palestine, Israel and Egypt are happening on the daily bases, but communication on the highest level is not planned yet.
