Aid flights continue arriving in Egypt, with nowhere to go

At least two aid flights – from Turkey and the WHO – have landed at Egypt’s Al Arish airport near the Gaza border today.

That brings the total number of planes that have arrived this week carrying humanitarian relief for Gaza to at least five, according to Reuters news agency, which cites a Red Cross official and an aid volunteer.

But that aid has been unable to be brought into the besieged enclave, with an agreement on humanitarian access remaining elusive.

WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has warned “every hour these supplies remain on the Egyptian side of the border, more girls and boys, women and men, especially those vulnerable or disabled, will die”.
