The UK drops ten tonnes of humanitarian aid into Gaza for the second time in less than a week

The UK dropped ten tonnes of humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip on Friday for the second time in less than a week amid warnings that Gazans face “imminent” famine. Defense Secretary Grant Shapps said: “The UK is doing everything necessary to get as much food as possible into Gaza. Today’s airdrop will provide more than 10 tonnes of food to civilians in need.” He also expressed his gratitude to the personnel of the Royal Air Force and the British Army. He concluded: “We will continue to exploit all opportunities to deliver aid by air, sea and land to Gaza.” A RAF A400M aircraft took off from the Jordanian capital, Amman, to Gaza to drop supplies along the coast of the Gaza Strip. The packages contained rice, flour, oil, baby food, canned goods, and water. The British Royal Air Force dropped another ten tons of supplies on the Palestinian Strip on Monday in an international aid operation led by Jordanian authorities, which are working in “close cooperation” with London to plan this mission, Gaza Strip authorities said on Friday. More than 32,600 people have been killed as a result of Israeli army attacks on the Palestinian Strip since October 7, 2023.
