Palestinian minister of health Dr. Basem Naim has said that the conference held recently in Istanbul, Turkey, for the support of Gaza had pledged 600 million Euros to finance 470 projects.


He told a press conference in Gaza on Wednesday allocated for his foreign tour that his tour primarily targeted briefing the world on the conditions of the government and private health establishments in the Strip and the devastating repercussions of siege on this sector in particular.
