UAE says it will establish a field hospital in Gaza- state news agency

CAIRO (Reuters) - The United Arab Emirates will establish a fully equipped field hospital in the Gaza Strip, the state news agency said on Monday without elaborating whether there is an agreement on this initiative with Israel.

The agency said five aircraft carrying the equipment and requirements necessary for the establishment and operation of the field hospital departed from Abu Dhabi on Monday heading to Al-Arish airport in Egypt.
