UAE, Egypt airdrop 24 tonnes of relief aid in Gaza


UAE Air Force and the Egyptian Air Force completed the 12th airdrop of humanitarian and relief aid in the northern Gaza Strip as part of the "Birds of Goodness" operation.

The Joint Operations Command of the Ministry of Defence announced on their official X (formerly Twitter) account. The United Arab Emirates has doubled its efforts during the holy month of Ramadan.

The operation is part of  'Chivalrous Knight 3', a humanitarian operation to support Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.

The airdrops were carried out over inaccessible isolated areas in the northern Gaza Strip by two planes carrying 24 tonnes of food and relief aid, which brings the total amount of aid airdrops since the launch of the "Birds of Goodness" operation to 486 tonnes of food and relief aid.

This aid is provided through the combined efforts of the UAE's charitable institutions, including the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC), the Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation (KF), the Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation, and other humanitarian and charitable institutions in the country.
