Download PDF for this date

Israel has sent a plane carrying emergency medical aid to Bulgaria, in an effort to ease the crisis in Sofia.

One ton of supplies was sent this week as a humanitarian response to the shortage of medicines in Bulgarian hospitals.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry said in a statement that it would consider sending additional shipments in the near future, depending on developments.

The ministry also said the Jewish people are indebted to Bulgaria for its role in saving the Bulgarian Jewish community during the Holocaust.
