The second UAE aid ship carrying 4,544 tonnes of humanitarian supplies for the people of Gaza has set sail.

The ship, which departed from the Port of Fujairah, will head to Egypt's Al Arish city.

It's carrying 4,303 tonnes of food, 154 tonnes of shelter materials, and 87 tonnes of medical aid provided by Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation, the Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Charitable & Humanitarian Foundation, and the Emirates Red Crescent.
