Algeria to send 150 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Gaza

76

Algeria will dispatch 150 tons of humanitarian aid to the besieged Gaza Strip amid a deadly Israeli offensive on the Palestinian enclave, the Algerian Red Crescent Society said in a statement.

The aid will be transported aboard eight military aircraft from Blida, south of the capital Algiers, to Egypt’s El-Arish Airport near the Gaza Strip, the society said.

The aid shipments “reflect Algeria’s commitment to unconditional and unlimited solidarity with the Palestinian people, who are facing a non-stop aggression, particularly in the Gaza Strip, by the occupying forces under an unjust siege,” it added.

More than 32,200 Palestinians have since been killed and over 74,500 injured amid mass destruction and shortages of necessities.

Israel has also imposed a crippling blockade on the Gaza Strip, leaving its population, particularly residents of northern Gaza, on the verge of starvation.

The Israeli war has pushed 85% of Gaza’s population into internal displacement amid acute shortages of food, clean water, and medicine, while 60% of the enclave’s infrastructure has been damaged or destroyed, according to the UN.

More than 1.1 million people in Gaza — half of the population — have completely exhausted their food supplies and coping capacities and are struggling with catastrophic hunger and starvation.
