A Saudi-Arabian delegation is to arrive in the Gaza Strip Wednesday to coordinate the Friday delivery of six plane-loads of medical supplies, according to a report from the Palestinian Ma’an news agency.

The supplies are scheduled to arrive via Egypt, which has been coordinating the donation with Palestinian and Saudi officials, the report said.
