Dubai, Aug 29 : Bahrain will help 100 people injured in Israeli strikes on Gaza to get treatment in Egypt, a media report said Friday.
Bahrain has pledged USD 150,000 to fly 100 injured people from Gaza to Egypt for treatment, Gulf Daily News reported, adding that voluntary organisations -- Bahrain Medical Society (BMS), the Bahrain Red Crescent Society (BRCS) and the Red Crescent Societies of Palestine and Egypt -- will sign an agreement to this effect next week in Egypt's capital Cairo.
The project, proposed by BMS and funded by the Bahrain government, will be overseen by the Royal Charity Organisation (RCO).
Palestinian Ambassador Taha Mohammed Abdel Kader said that treatment will take place at the Palestine Hospital in Cairo.
