During the 37th session of the Food and Agriculture Organization’s (FAO) Regional Conference for the Near East, Khasawneh underscored the significance of airdrops as a burgeoning pressure mechanism on governments and regimes. He highlighted their role in expanding a culture of humanitarian aid, prompting countries worldwide to escalate such efforts to safeguard the people of Gaza from the devastating impacts of hunger and famine.

Khasawneh said, "It is our collective responsibility in this conference to strengthen this culture as it represents the protection of noble humanitarian values in aiding the innocent and afflicted on earth.”

He also emphasized the importance of improved management of food loss and waste, noting that this measure would play a significant role in alleviating hunger among millions of individuals experiencing food shortages simultaneously.

"We cannot overlook the brutal aggression against the Palestinian people, especially in the Gaza Strip," emphasized Khasawneh. He pointed out that satellite images have revealed widespread destruction of agricultural land, estimated to be more than 40 percent of arable land, along with the destruction of 70 percent of the infrastructure in the sector as a whole.
