Jordan's Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah II arrived in Al-Arish today, Monday, to oversee the preparation and dispatch of a special Jordanian field hospital, Jordanian Field Hospital/2, to southern Gaza Strip.

The 41-bed facility, to be set up in Khan Yunis, arrives following directives from King Abdullah II, affirming Jordan's ongoing commitment to support Palestinians and provide medical services to those affected by Israeli aggression. 

The hospital staff, totaling 145 medical and nursing teams from the Royal Medical Services, along with administrative personnel, were flown in on a Royal Jordanian Air Force plane carrying essential medical equipment and supplies. 

Earlier, 40 trucks carrying medical equipment and necessities reached the Rafah crossing to equip the hospital.
