Egyptian Air Force airdrops tons of humanitarian aid into Gaza during Eid al Fitr

Egyptian Air Force have airdropped tons of relief and humanitarian aid into Gaza Strip during the Eid al Fitr days in an attempt to ease the suffering of the Palestinian people.

The airdropping operations came in implementation of the directives of President Abdel Fattah al Sisi, and in cooperation with Jordan.

In the meantime, Egypt still continuing its efforts to reach a permanent ceasefire in Gaza through talks and negotiations with all parties.

In March, Egypt declared its participation in the global alliance, which includes Jordan, the United States, France, the Netherlands, and Belgium, to provide airdropped aid to Gaza.

The first humanitarian aid airdrop by Egypt took place on Tuesday, February 27, in coordination with Jordan, the UAE, Qatar, and France.

The operations target different areas in northern Gaza that are challenging to access through ground means.

Cairo has consistently emphasized that the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza remains open to facilitate the delivery of aid.

However, Egyptian officials have repeatedly accused Israel of obstructing aid deliveries through the Rafah and Kerem Abu Salem crossings.

During a ministerial meeting in Cairo on Thursday, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates jointly called for the opening of all border crossings between Israel and the Gaza Strip to enable the delivery of humanitarian assistance.

The need for aid in Gaza has grown increasingly urgent, with the United Nations estimating that at least a quarter of the strip’s population is on the brink of famine.
