The Jordanian air force said that it dropped badly needed medical supplies to a hospital in the Gaza Strip in the early hours of Monday.

The news was reported by the official Jordanian news agency, Petra, and confirmed by the Jordian on his account on the social media platform X.

“Royal Jordanian Air Force (RJAF) aircraft on Monday air-dropped urgent medical aid via parachutes to the Jordanian field hospital in Gaza (Gaza/76), which was about to run out of supplies due to the delay in delivering aid to the Gaza Strip via the Rafah crossing,” Petra reported.

The agency cited a Jordan Armed Forces Army (JAF) source as saying that “this move comes as a continuation of Jordan’s efforts to support the brethren in light of the war on the Gaza Strip.”

JAF, according to the source, “reiterates that the hospital continues to operate despite the severe shortage of supplies and perform its humanitarian role to alleviate the suffering of families in the Gaza Strip.”

Announcing the news, Jordan’s King Abdullah said in a tweet that Jordan “will always be there for our Palestinian brethren.”

“Our fearless air force personnel air-dropped at midnight urgent medical aid to the Jordanian field hospital in Gaza,” the King said early Monday in his official X account.

There is yet to be a confirmation from the Palestinian side on Gaza whether the urgent packages have arrived safely.
