BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Japanese and Palestinian officials on Wednesday held a ceremony after completing a project to improve medical equipment at St. Joseph's Hospital in occupied East Jerusalem.

Naofumi Hashimoto, representative of Japan to the Palestinian Authority, and Adnan Hussieni, governor of Jerusalem, attended the ceremony, which marked the completion of a project funded by Japan in January.

A statement from the Japanese mission said the $79,000-fund would help introduce medical equipment to serve patients in need from all over Palestine to receive more adequate and safe treatment.

"With full understanding of difficult living conditions in East Jerusalem, the Government of Japan is very keen to support the Palestinian population in East Jerusalem," the statement said.

Japan has funded several health and education projects in Jerusalem in the past.
