Sheikh Zayed Hospital in Palestine
In the midst of the bloody events that took place in the Palestinian territories in 1996, as part of what was known as the “tunnel revelation” and while the number of the wounded was constantly increasing, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, may God bless him, refused to accept the call of brotherhood and embody the bond And the unity of Arab blood, so the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital was built in Ramallah, which later bore the name “Sheikh Zayed Hospital” in appreciation and gratitude of the people of Palestine, for this authentic Arab generosity.

Raed Atelier, Secretary of the Inma Center for Development and Justice, told Al-Bayan: This initiative of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, “may God have mercy on him,” had a great impact in alleviating the suffering of the wounded, who were so narrowed in hospitals that Some of them were taken for treatment abroad, indicating that the late Palestinian President Yasser Arafat insisted that the hospital bear the name of Sheikh Zayed, out of pride for his honourable stances and noble generosity.
During the second Palestinian uprising, which was later known as the “Al-Aqsa Intifada,” Palestinian pain reached the point of groaning in the Emirates, so it sent a field hospital, headquartered in Ramallah, and it was known as the Emirati surgical station, and it played a pivotal role in treating the wounded, whose numbers exceeded the capabilities of Palestinian hospitals.
Whereas Palestinian teachers were stranded during the Al-Aqsa Intifada, and they were unable to reach their schools and universities, the UAE clung to the Palestinian concern, and all the suffering that branched from it, so the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, “may God rest his soul,” established a city for teachers, In the town of Hanina in occupied Jerusalem, it included 58 housing units, on an area of 7,000 square meters, at a cost of $ 4 million.
