Israel will send life-saving equipment to India, including individual oxygen generators to help the country with the COVID-19 pandemic, the country’s Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.

“India is one of Israel’s closest and most important friends. We stand with India, particularly during these difficult times India is experiencing, and are sending life-saving equipment to our Indian brothers and sisters,” said Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry in a press release said that hundreds of oxygen generators, respirators, and medical equipment are being sent to India following the country’s coronavirus crisis.

“The delivery of the assistance, which will be transferred to India by air through a series of flights throughout the week, is the result of the Foreign Ministry’s work in cooperation with the National Security Council, Health Ministry, Finance Ministry, and Control Center, together with full coordination with the Indian government through Israel’s embassy in New Delhi and the Indian embassy in Israel,” the release said.

The assistance package will include thousands of group and individual oxygen generators – which are needed immediately in the Indian health system – respirators, medications, and additional medical equipment.
