More Humanitarian Aid For Gaza Land In Egypt


(MENAFN- Famagusta Gazette) More airplanes carrying humanitarian aid to the war-torn Gaza Strip landed Monday at Egypt's al-Arish Airport in North Sinai governorate.

Planes from Algeria, Kuwait, Iraq, Türkiye, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) carrying humanitarian aid for the Gaza Strip arrived at the airport which is less than 50 km from the Rafa border crossing, the Egyptian Red Cresent announced on its official Facebook page.

Meanwhile, al-Arish Airport also received two World Health Organization planes carrying aid to Gaza, reported the state-run Ahram Gate news website.

Turkish Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said on Monday that Türkiye sent two cargo planes to Egypt carrying medical equipment and supplies for the Gaza Strip, while two more aircraft would be sent with more supplies.

The aircraft also carried a medical team of 20 doctors, he added on social media platform X.

Earlier in the day, the Egyptian Red Cresent announced that it delivered a new aid convoy to the Palestinian Red Cresent Society through the Rafah crossing between Egypt and Gaza.

The Palestinian Red Crescent confirmed that it has received the third convoy of 20 trucks carrying humanitarian aid containing food, water, medicines, and medical supplies.

Earlier in the day, North Sinai Governorate announced in a press release that at least 27 aid planes have landed in North Sinai's al-Arish airport since October 12, carrying aid from many countries including Jordan, UAE, Russia, Türkiye, and Brazil as well as United Nations agencies.

For two weeks, the Gaza Strip has been under deadly Israeli siege and strikes in retaliation for the attack of the Gaza-controlling Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) against Israel on Oct. 7. The Israel-Hamas conflict killed more than 6,000 people on both sides. ■
