In response to the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, a field hospital is soon to be established in the Gaza Strip to provide vital medical assistance to the Palestinian population.
This endeavor is an integral part of the ongoing ‘Gallant Knight 3’ humanitarian operation, which was set into motion by His Highness just yesterday.

The UAE had previously pledged $20 million in urgent aid for the Palestinian population and initiated a program to bring approximately 1,000 Palestinian children, along with their families, from the Gaza Strip to receive medical treatment at UAE hospitals. Additionally, a community relief campaign for Palestinians affected by the current conflict has been launched in the UAE, under the banner ‘Compassion for Gaza.’
A fleet of five aircraft took off from Abu Dhabi International Airport, carrying all the necessary equipment and supplies required for the upcoming field hospital. These cargo shipments will be offloaded at Al-Arish Airport in Egypt, from where they will be transported to the Gaza Strip.
The construction of the field hospital, designed to accommodate up to 150 patients, will unfold in several phases. It will comprise specialized departments for general surgery, orthopedics, pediatrics, gynecology, as well as fully-equipped anesthesia and intensive care units for both children and adults.
Furthermore, the facility will include clinics offering services in internal medicine, dentistry, psychiatry, and family medicine. The hospital will be equipped with essential diagnostic and support services, including CT imaging, a fully-functional laboratory, a pharmacy, and other crucial medical facilities.
This initiative underscores the UAE’s unwavering commitment to supporting and standing in solidarity with the Palestinian people, particularly during the ongoing challenging circumstances they face.
