Gaza wounded treated in East Jerusalem, Israel, Jordan

Doctors and aid agencies are trying to capitalize on the truce in Gaza to evacuate more wounded Palestinians for treatment in East Jerusalem, Israel and Jordan.

Ninety of the most serious cases have been evacuated through the Erez border crossing since the conflict began, according to Guy Inbar, spokesman for COGAT, which is part of the Israeli Defense Ministry.

He says the wounded had been sent to Israel and Jordan from an Israeli field hospital at Erez.

Medics and the Red Crescent tell AFP that two patients were sent to the Arab Israeli town of Nazareth and dozens of others to three hospitals in East Jerusalem.
