On Wednesday, June 17, a Qatar Air Force transport plane landed in the Egyptian city of El-Arish, located north of the Sinai Peninsula near the Gaza border.

According to the Qatari publication Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, the plane delivered medicines intended for hostages held captive in Gaza by Hamas and other terrorist organizations.

Earlier, Qatar's Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that, through the mediation of Doha and Paris, an agreement had been reached between Israel and Hamas on the transfer of medicine to the abducted.

It was reported that two planes would deliver medicine for the abducted and humanitarian aid for Palestinians from Qatar to El-Arish in the north of the Sinai Peninsula, from where they would be transferred through the Rafah checkpoint to the Gaza Strip.

A day earlier, French President Emmanuel Macron said that the list of necessary medication for the Israeli hostages had been agreed upon, and the medicine had already been purchased.

On January 15th, CNN reported that the medicine destined for Gaza are intended for "40 hostages."

The cargo delivered to Sinai will be transferred to the Ministry of Health of the Gaza Strip. Representatives of the Red Cross will not participate in the process of transferring medication to the abducted and will not be allowed to see them.
