The Venezuelan government has sent humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, the densely-populated area which has been under fire in the last 17 days.
An army Hercules C130 cargo plane bearing 12.5 tonnes of medical supplies and other materials was headed to Cairo which will transport the supplies into Gaza.
"We count on the support of the Egyptian Government and the United Nations so this life-sustaining shipment can reach the Palestinian people," AFP quoted President Hugo Chavez as saying on Sunday.
Chavez added that a second 80-tonnes humanitarian shipment would leave Venezuela for Gaza next week.
Since Israel launched an all-out war against people in Gaza on December 27, at least 905 Palestinians have been killed and some 4,080 others are reported wounded.
The Venezuelan president had earlier condemned the attacks and expelled the Israeli ambassador to Caracas to express its dismay at Israel's military campaign. Israel also expelled Venezuela's charge d'affaires.
Chavez also urged the people of Israel to stand up against Tel Aviv's 'new holocaust'.

I wonder if Israel will let the plane through?
