United Arab Emirates (UAE) has announced the dispatch of another aid shipment to Gaza, in collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), carrying about 1,166 tons of urgently needed food supplies.

This new shipment follows one sent two weeks ago, resulting from joint efforts with the United States, Cyprus, the United Nations, and various international donors, including the European Union. Loaded with comprehensive relief aid from Cyprus's Larnaca port, the ship set sail for Ashdod port before heading to Gaza through the Beit Hanoun crossing, facilitated by the American Agency for Near East Refugee Assistance (ANERA).

The UAE remains committed to working with global partners, intensifying efforts to ensure aid flows and distributions through all available channels, aiming to alleviate the severe humanitarian challenges faced by Gaza residents.

Sending aid via sea, land, and air underscores the UAE's dedication to supporting Palestinians and delivering vital humanitarian assistance to them.
