Saudi Arabia, through its humanitarian arm, the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief), continued airdrops of food aid to the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip in cooperation with Jordan.
On Monday, an airdrop of food supplies took place in the Al-Mawasi area, west of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip, where hundreds of thousands of displaced people are located.

“It was carried out in cooperation with the Jordanian Armed Forces with the aim of breaking the Israeli occupation forces’ closure of border crossings,” the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The airdrop was part of the popular campaign for relief for the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, which was directed by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, and Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Crown Prince and Prime Minister.
