As part of its third round of evacuations, Turkey intends to remove some sick or injured Gazan children and youth on Friday, according to a statement made on Thursday by Health Minister Fahrettin Koca.
150 people, primarily cancer patients and their companions, have been transferred from Gaza to Turkey so far so they can continue their treatment. This week, it has also evacuated over a hundred Turks, Turkish Cypriots, and their families.
Koca added that three sick Gazan youngsters had been transferred to Turkey on Thursday while speaking at the Esenboga airport in Ankara. The two-year-old boy and the two girls, ages nine and ten, would receive treatment in Turkey, he continued.
