According to Al-Mamlaka TV, Shtayyeh stated during the weekly cabinet meeting, "I demand the United Nations and the European Union airdrop aid in Gaza, especially in the northern region, using parachutes, as has been done in various experiments worldwide. We request the opening of relief passages to Gaza and not confining it to just the Rafah crossing."

Through the Royal Jordanian Air Force planes, Jordan had airdropped aid to the Jordanian Field Hospital in Gaza 76 times.

The Rafah crossing, the border point between Gaza and Egypt, which Israel does not control, is the sole passage currently permitting the entry of trucks loaded with food, medicine, medical supplies, water, blankets, tents, and other essential aid.

According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), 76 trucks crossed from Egypt into Gaza on Sunday, raising the total number of trucks entering the area since the 21st of October to 981.

However, this aid is insufficient to meet the needs of the 2.4 million people residing in Gaza. According to the United Nations, 1.6 million people have been displaced from the region since the onset of the Israeli aggression.
