GAZA CITY— A Turkish Armed Forces plane departing from Israel with 18 injured Gazans onboard has landed in Ankara's Esenboga Airport Wednesday evening.
The wounded Palestinians including one pregnant woman and five children and their relatives reached Turkey on a Turkish C-130 Hercules transport plane, equipped as an ambulance with a capacity of 40 stretchers, for further medical treatment.
The new group of wounded taken to Istanbul and Ankara has brought the total number of injured Palestinians in Turkey to 25.
Seven others were already airlifted to Turkey during the week as part of Turkey's plan to airlift a total of 200 Palestinians for treatment, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu announced Monday.
Turkey's disaster management agency AFAD is planning to conduct another airlift next Tuesday, spokesman Ramazan Sevinc said. Hospitals across Turkey are on standby to receive the wounded.
