Jordan announces Airdrop of urgent medical aid to Gaza for second time

Jordan has for the second time in a week airdropped medical aid for Gaza.

An official of the Jordanian Armed Forces said a Royal Air Force plane dropped on Saturday urgent medical aid using parachutes to the Jordanian field hospital in Gaza, reported the Petra state news agency.

The operation was held in cooperation with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar to boost the hospital’s capabilities and increase the ability of medical personnel to provide health and treatment services to Palestinians in Gaza.

The Armed Forces confirm that the hospital continues to operate despite the difficult conditions the hospital is suffering from amid ongoing the Israeli bombing of the Gaza Strip.
