Russia will deliver 50 BTR-70 armored personnel carriers (APC) to the Palestinian security forces in the West Bank in the next few days, the Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

Israel agreed in 2008 on the supply of Russian APC stripped of weaponry to Palestinian security forces to help them fight terrorist organizations.

"Russia continues to provide assistance to Palestinians. The 50 APCs will be delivered to Jordan in the next few days and they will later be transferred to the Palestinian security forces in the West Bank," said spokesman Andrei Nesterenko at a news briefing in Moscow.

The Russian Defense Ministry earlier said that all 50 vehicles, taken from the ministry's arsenal, were ready for shipment and weapons have been removed from them.

Russia is donating the APCs to the Palestinian authorities.
