UAE sends 238th aid plane to support Palestinians


The UAE has sent a plane carrying 90 tonnes of relief and food aid to Egypt's Al Arish city in preparation for their transport to the Gaza Strip.

It's the 238th UAE aid plane to be dispatched since the launch of 'Operation Chivalrous Knight 3' on November 5, 2023, to support Palestinian people.

The latest batch of aid includes 450 tents, as well as food parcels and dates.

Operation Chivalrous Knight 3 was launched by the Joint Operations Command of the Ministry of Defence in coordination with the Emirates Red Crescent, the Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation, and the Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation.

The UAE has already airlifted 33,000 tonnes of food and medical aid and shelter equipment via 395 cargo planes, including 103 aircraft that participated in airdrops as part of the 'Birds of Goodness' operation.

Aid was also dispatched to Gaza via six cargo ships that set sail from Cyprus, as well as 1,243 trucks.
