ANKARA - Turkish Health Ministry will bring four injured Gazans, including a child, to Turkey for medical treatment, officials said.

The ambulance, which departed Ankara for Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport in Israel late on Sunday, is expected to arrive in Turkey during morning hours of Monday. 

More than 1,939 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli attacks on Gaza since July 7, while more than 10,000 others injured.

Israel stopped its attacks from Tuesday through Friday under an Egypt-brokered  ceasefire of three days, but has been striking different parts of the Gaza Strip since the ceasefire expired.
