The Italian authorities are going to accept about a hundred seriously ill Palestinian children for medical care, TASS reports


A statement posted on the country's Defence Ministry website reads, “Italy will accept about a hundred Palestinian children with serious complications who, accompanied by their families, will receive medical care in a number of hospitals in the country."

The source adds that Italy is negotiating with Egypt to send a military field hospital to the Gaza Strip. "Rome and Paris could also co-operate on this issue and hope that other countries will join this initiative," the document reads.
