Abu Dhabi – Reem bint Ebrahim Al Hashimy, Minister of State for International Cooperation, recently announced the arrival of a shipment of food aid for the people of Gaza, specifically for the northern Gaza Strip. The shipment, totaling 252 tonnes of humanitarian relief supplies, arrived via the maritime corridor from Larnaca in the Republic of Cyprus. This delivery was made possible through the collaborative efforts of the UAE, the US, Cyprus, the United Nations, as well as international donors like the United Kingdom and the European Union.

The food aid was successfully unloaded at the UN warehouses in Deir al-Balah, where it will be distributed to Palestinians in urgent need. Al Hashimy emphasized that this joint effort with international partners and humanitarian organizations is part of the UAE’s ongoing commitment to providing relief and addressing the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

The UAE, following the directives of its leadership, has been dedicated to delivering urgent humanitarian aid to Gaza. Over 32,000 tonnes of supplies, including food, relief, and medical items, have been sent through 260 flights, 49 airdrops, and 1,243 trucks.
