The international Red Cross says it is sending medical supplies to Gaza to help treat hundreds of people wounded in Israeli military strikes against targets in the Palestinian territory. The International Committee of the Red Cross says Gaza's hospitals are "are overwhelmed and unable to cope with the scale and type of injuries that keep coming in." Some 280 Palestinians - mostly Hamas police - have died and hundreds more have been wounded in Israel's campaign against Gaza rocket squads. The Geneva-based ICRC says a shipment containing medical supplies, intravenous fluids and spare parts for hospital generators is expected to arrive in Gaza Sunday. The Palestinian Red Crescent is sending five ambulances to Gaza from Jerusalem on Monday.
