Jordan says 8 planes dropped aid into Gaza, in largest operation yet

Jordan’s official news agency says the country’s army and allies deployed eight airdrops over Gaza today, the largest such operation to date.

Three Jordanian planes, three US planes, and one each from France and Egypt took part in the operation aimed at delivering aid to various locations around the crisis-wracked Strip, a statement carried by the Petra news agency says.

The planes dropped unspecified relief supplies, including food provided by the World Food Program.

“These airdrops are a continuation of Jordan’s commitment to providing medical, relief, and food aid to the people of Gaza, aimed at alleviating the humanitarian crisis exacerbated by the ongoing Israeli war on the Gaza Strip,” the statement says.

According to Jordan, there have been 43 airdrops over Gaza since war broke out on October 7, the majority of them carried out by Amman.
