Final preparations were underway in the Israeli city of Ashdod on Tuesday as authorities prepared to send equipment and medical supplies to West African nations worst-affected by Ebola.

The delivery, which is expected to be shipped from Israel on Friday to Sierra Leon, Liberia and Guinea, includes six cargo containers of specialist equipment to set up portable field hospitals.

"Each clinic consists of 20 beds and it's a fully equipped clinic with beds, and with carts and treatment carts and oxygen and certain medications and protection gear," Gil Heskel, the head of Mashav, Israel's Agency for International Aid and Development in the Foreign Ministry told Reuters.
