Secretary-General of the Arab League, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, described the joint aerial relief operations over Gaza conducted by the Jordanian Armed Forces, Egypt, the UAE, and Qatar as a “significant and appreciated” breakthrough in alleviating the suffering of Gaza’s population.

Aboul Gheit urged Arab countries to continue these operations to confront the policy of starvation and blockade imposed by the Israeli Occupation.

A military source at the General Command of the Jordanian Armed Forces - Arab Army stated earlier thursday that, under royal directives, the Jordanian Armed Forces (JAF) executed two aerial drops of relief and food aid to the people in the Gaza Strip on Thursday.

The operation was conducted in collaboration with the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Sultanate of Oman to support and stand in solidarity with the people and alleviate the effects of the “Israeli” war raging on the Strip.

The Armed Forces affirm their continued efforts in sending aid through an airlift to deliver humanitarian and medical assistance, whether through aid planes from Marka Airport to El-Arish International Airport or through aerial drops to the Gaza Strip.
