CAIRO- 25 March 2024: The Egyptian Air Force (EAF) has continued conducting airdrops of tons of humanitarian aid, including food items and relief supplies, into isolated areas in the northern part of the Gaza Strip on March 24 and 25.

The airdrops are carried out in collaboration with the UAE.

The Egyptian Air Force has also been conducting airdrops in collaboration with Jordan and other international partners to deliver aid to Gaza.

In March, Egypt declared its participation in the global alliance, which includes Jordan, the United States, France, the Netherlands, and Belgium, to provide airdropped aid to Gaza.


The first humanitarian aid airdrop by Egypt took place on Tuesday, February 27, in coordination with Jordan, the UAE, Qatar, and France.

The operations target different areas in northern Gaza that are challenging to access through ground means.

Cairo has consistently emphasized that the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza remains open to facilitate the delivery of aid.

However, Egyptian officials have repeatedly accused Israel of obstructing aid deliveries through the Rafah and Kerem Abu Salem crossings.

During a ministerial meeting in Cairo on Thursday, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates jointly called for the opening of all border crossings between Israel and the Gaza Strip to enable the delivery of humanitarian assistance.

The need for aid in Gaza has grown increasingly urgent, with the United Nations estimating that at least a quarter of the strip's population is on the brink of famine.
