UAE sends 960 tonnes of aid to Gaza


The UAE has sent 960 tonnes of medical aid and food supplies to support 20,000 families in the Gaza Strip.

Thirty-three shipments were dispatched through the Rafah Border Crossing.

The project is being overseen by the UAE's humanitarian arm, Emirates Red Crescent (ERC).

The assistance comes at a time when a large segment of the population in Gaza is suffering from a shortage of food, medicine, clothing and basic construction materials.

In January, the UAE sent 808 tonnes of relief materials to support 10,000 families in the Gaza Strip.
