Diposting pada 15 Juni 2024 oleh admin / Dilihat: 0 kali

Jakarta (ANTARA) – The Indonesian National Army (TNI) confirmed that it has prepared three planes to evacuate around 1,000 Palestinians injured as a result of Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip to Indonesia.

The aircraft on alert include the Boeing 737-400/500, C-130J Super Hercules, and Hercules C-130H, said TNI Commander General Agus Subiyanto when met by clerics from the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) in Jakarta, Friday.

The Indonesian Air Force’s Boeing 737-400/500 can carry 41 crew members, 86 passengers and 10 tons of logistics, while the C-130J can accommodate 51 people and the C-130H can carry 55 people.

The plane will transport injured Palestinians to Indonesia for treatment at the Gatot Soebroto Army Hospital (RSPAD) and the General Besar Soedirman National Defense Center Hospital.

The two Jakarta-based hospitals can receive up to 1,000 patients, General Agus said, adding that all injured Palestinian refugees will be provided with the best medical care and post-traumatic care.

For this reason, the TNI has prepared a team of specialist doctors to provide therapy to refugees who have experienced trauma, he said.

The TNI is also ready to send further humanitarian aid to Gaza, including hospital ships, as long as a ceasefire is implemented and the Indonesian military has a mandate from the UN, he said.

At the recent IISS Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore, Indonesian Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto, who is also the President-elect, cited President Joko Widodo’s instructions to him to evacuate around 1,000 injured Gaza refugees to Indonesia.

Gaza refugees will then receive medical treatment at hospitals in Indonesia.

Regarding this, Prabowo admitted that he welcomed the proposal of former East Java Governor Khofifah Indar Parawansa to send 1,000 Gaza refugees back to Islamic boarding schools in East Java.

Several community leaders in West Java also expressed their readiness to accept Gaza refugees and send them to Islamic boarding schools in the province to receive good education and care there.

Prabowo reiterated Indonesia’s consistent stance that the armed conflict in Gaza must be resolved through a “ceasefire and negotiations.”

“Indonesia firmly supports Palestinian independence, a two-state solution, and all efforts to immediately reach a ceasefire,” he said.

A new armed conflict erupted between Palestine and Israel following Hamas’ surprise attack on Israel in the early hours of October 7, 2023.

Before the Palestinian liberation fighters’ attack on Israel, Tel Aviv continued to close the Gaza crossing.

In response to the unprecedented surprise attack, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared war on Hamas. Since the war began, Israeli armed forces have killed at least 37,266 Palestinian civilians and injured around 85,102 others as of June 15, according to Al Jazeera.

Al Jazeera reported that many of those killed in Gaza were women and children. Israel’s aggression has also triggered a humanitarian disaster.
