Two C130 aircraft belonging to the Royal Jordanian Air Force (RJAF) participated in the airdrops, targeting various areas across northern Gaza. One of them conducted a drop of urgent medical supplies to the Jordanian field hospital Gaza/77. Additionally, aircraft from Egypt, the US, and Germany took part, marking Germany's first participation with the JAF, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.

The Jordanian aid operation was conducted in cooperation with Brunei, reflecting Jordan's steadfast stance towards the Gaza Strip and its commitment to continuing assistance to Palestinians in various circumstances.

Furthermore, Major General Yousef Huneiti, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Staff, oversaw the preparation of Jordanian aid aircraft.

During his inspection at King Abdullah II Air Base, Huneiti emphasized the continued international efforts to send aid to Gaza through airlifts. He stressed the necessity of delivering more humanitarian aid to support residents in facing food shortages resulting from the ongoing Israeli war.

Huneiti also met with base personnel, conveying greetings from His Majesty King Abdullah. He expressed pride in the distinguished level of efficiency and professionalism that the JAF have achieved in carrying out their tasks and duties.

JAF confirmed their ongoing efforts to send humanitarian and medical aid through an air bridge, either from Marka Airport to El Arish International Airport or through aerial drop operations in Gaza, along with land aid convoys.

It's noteworthy that Jordan is working to coordinate international efforts to deliver more aid to the people of the strip, especially during Ramadan.
