US considering airdropping aid into Gaza as land deliveries increasingly hard

US President Joe Biden’s administration is considering airdropping aid from US military planes into Gaza as land deliveries become increasingly difficult, an American official tells Reuters.

The Axios news site, which first reported the US was considering airdrops, cites US officials acknowledging such action would not be particularly effective, and that any large amounts of aid can only be moved in by land.

“The situation is really bad. We are unable to get enough aid [in] by truck so we need desperate measures like airdrops,” a US official says.
