AMMAN — The Jordanian Armed Forces – Arab Army (JAF), in cooperation with other countries, on Tuesday carried out five more airdrops of aid into the war-torn northern Gaza Strip, where people are reportedly suffering from acute shortage of food supplies. 

These airdrops were carried out as part of the ongoing efforts of Jordan to support the steadfastness of the Palestinians and alleviate the repercussions of the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The operation involved the participation of two aircraft from the Royal Jordanian Air Force, one aircraft from Egypt, one from the UAE, and one aircraft from Germany.

JAF reiterated that it is still sending aid via an air bridge to supply humanitarian and medical supplies, whether by flights from Marka Airport towards Egypt’s El Arish International Airport, airdrops on the Gaza Strip, or land aid convoys. 

This endeavour is part of Jordan’s continuous efforts to alleviate the suffering of Palestinians in the besieged strip and support them in light of the difficult circumstances imposed by the Israeli aggression on Gaza since October 7.

The JAF has conducted 60 airdrops since the start of the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip, in addition to 96 airdrops that were conducted by the army in collaboration with other countries.
