He added that Jordan successfully found a new route to directly deliver aid to Gaza via the King Hussein Bridge, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.

Mubaidin pointed out that the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization (JHCO) and the World Food Program (WFP) sent a convoy consisting of 46 trucks loaded with 750 tons of essential food supplies to the strip. The aid was transported via the Al-Auja crossing, then to Gaza via the Kerem Shalom border crossing.

The minister affirmed that this step is a victory in sustaining the delivery of aid to Gaza. He noted that this new route through the Kerem Shalom crossing is shorter and ensures faster delivery due to the pressures faced in Rafah and hindrances from Israeli forces.

He highlighted His Majesty’s efforts since the beginning of the war. Since October, His Majesty conducted several international visits to Arab and Western countries; procuring humanitarian relief to Gaza. As well as calling for an immediate ceasefire and the protection of Palestinians in their homeland.

Mubaidin pointed to the vital role of Jordanians and the private sector in donating to the JHCO, commending them for their tenacious loyalty for the Palestinian cause.

As for the Jordanian Field Hospital in southern Gaza, Mubaidin confirmed that the continuing efforts of the hospital is a sign of Jordan’s unwavering support of Gaza. Their goal is to provide all forms of support and assistance to the people in the region.

Finally, Mubaidin mentioned the sixth airdrop operation of medical aid to the Jordanian Field Hospital South, conducted by a Royal Jordanian Air Force aircraft on Wednesday, in order to sustain the hospital's operations to continue providing health and medical services. The aid was dropped using specially designed boxes to ensure the protection of medical materials.
