Scottish officials have declared the country ready to receive Gaza civilians who have been injured in the current Israeli military aggression on the region, according to a press release by External Affairs Minister Humza Yousaf.

In a letter to William Hague, Mr. Yousaf called on the British Foreign Secretary to exert pressure on the Israeli occupation government to "end the blockade of Gaza, which the Scottish Government views as collective punishment."

According to Al Ray, the letter included an offer made by Scottish hospitals, asking Mr. Hague to do the same.

"The Scottish Government believes that the continuation of the blockade in Gaza is exacerbating the suffering experienced by the people there. For that reason, I have today asked William Hague to exert further pressure on the Israeli Government to bring that blockade to an end."
