Qatar announces Israel-Hamas deal on medicine, aid into Gaza

TEHRAN, Jan. 17 (MNA) – Qatar says the Israeli regime and the Palestinian Resistance movement Hamas have reached an agreement on medicine and humanitarian aid into the besieged Gaza Strip.

In a statement on Tuesday night, the Qatari Foreign Ministry announced that Doha through mediation was able to strike a deal between Israel and Hamas for much-needed medicine and aid to Gaza.

“This agreement includes the delivery of medicine and help to civilians in exchange for the delivery of medicine needed by Israeli captives in Gaza”, the statement said.

The office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has also confirmed the deal, saying the transfer of medicine to captives in Gaza will begin from tomorrow.

The Israeli war on Gaza is on its 103rd day which the Zionist regime launched following a surprise operation called "Al-Aqsa Storm" from Gaza against the positions of the Israeli regime on October 7, 2023.

In late November, a short-lived 7-day truce saw more than 100 Israeli captives freed in exchange for Palestinians illegally held in Israeli jails and also allowed the delivery of much-needed humanitarian aid into Gaza after weeks of Israeli aggression plunged the besieged territory into a humanitarian catastrophe.
