Gaza: Greece sends more aid to Gaza

A new shipment of Greek humanitarian aid set sail for Gaza from the port of Piraeus at noon on Monday, according to Greek Foreign Affairs Ministry.

Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis, said: "Together with the Church of Greece, this is the third shipment that we are sending to Gaza. Two shipments have already left by air. We shall continue, and now in particular, with much greater fervor, because the humanitarian corridors are open now and, therefore, aid can arrive quickly."

"No matter how much we send, of course, more is always needed. Therefore, all the agencies coordinated in Greece and the government, of course, and the Church of Greece will combine our strength to enable us to have the best possible results," Bakoyannis said.
