At the same time as Gaza faces a drought crisis, Jordan has announced another airlift operation to deliver humanitarian aid to the people there.

The Jordanian army declared on Tuesday, February 27th, that it has sent a quantity of humanitarian aid including foodstuffs and other supplies to the besieged Gaza Strip, one of which was carried out by a French army plane.

In a statement, it was said that Jordanian forces, under the orders of King Abdullah II, “carried out four airlifts carrying aid for the people of Gaza.”

This operation came on the same day that two human rights groups accused Israel of further restricting humanitarian aid to Gaza, where the United Nations has warned of famine.

Previously announced flights, including joint operations with the Netherlands, had sent medical aid and other assistance to the Jordanian field hospital in northern Gaza.

The Jordanian army statement stated that Tuesday’s operation “was carried out with the aim of directly delivering aid to the people and dropping it along the coast of the Gaza Strip from north to south.”

It is worth mentioning that Jordan has conducted a total of 16 airlift operations since the start of the war on October 7 between Israel and Gaza.

Since then, Palestinians have endured a dire humanitarian crisis, lacking food, water, shelter, and medical care. Over 29,000 people have been killed in the war, with thousands more injured.
