Medicines for hostages, aid arrives in Gaza: Qatar

Medicines for hostages in Gaza and humanitarian aid for civilians entered the war-torn Palestinian territory on Wednesday under a deal mediated by Doha and Paris, Qatar announced.

"Over the past few hours, medicine and aid entered the Gaza Strip, in implementation of the agreement announced yesterday for the benefit of civilians in the Strip, including hostages," Qatar's foreign ministry spokesman Majed Al Ansari wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

Under the agreement thrashed out on Tuesday, medicines along with humanitarian aid are to be supplied to civilians in Gaza in exchange for delivering drugs needed by hostages held there.

Forty-five hostages are expected to receive medication according to the agreement between Israel and Hamas.
