RIYADH: Two Saudi aid planes, carrying trucks and forklifts to support relief efforts for Gaza, arrived at Egypt’s El-Arish International Airport, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported. The equipment, aimed at facilitating the loading and transportation of aid destined for Gaza, was handed over to the Egyptian Red Crescent.

These latest deliveries mark the 39th and 40th relief planes dispatched by the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief) since the launch of a national campaign in Saudi Arabia last November to aid the Palestinian people in Gaza. The provision of logistical support underscores Saudi Arabia’s commitment to providing crucial assistance to those affected by the ongoing crisis.

The timely delivery of aid by Saudi Arabia reflects its historical role in extending support to vulnerable communities facing crises and challenges worldwide.

Saudi Arabia’s Humanitarian Efforts

Highlighting the significance of Saudi Arabia’s humanitarian efforts, KSrelief reiterated the Kingdom’s steadfast commitment to standing by needy and affected countries and peoples during times of adversity. The aid delivery to Gaza via Egypt underscores the collaborative efforts aimed at alleviating the suffering of the Palestinian population and providing essential assistance to those in need.

Meanwhile, KSrelief teams continue their humanitarian operations in other crisis-affected regions, including Lebanon and Sudan. In Lebanon, efforts are underway to distribute 25,000 bags of bread daily among Syrian and Palestinian refugees, as well as the host community in northern Lebanon, through the Al-Amal Charitable Bakery project. This initiative aims to address food insecurity and provide sustenance to vulnerable populations in the region.

Similarly, in Sudan’s El-Suki locality of Sennar State, 2,570 beneficiaries received 641 food baskets as part of the Food Security Support Project. These ongoing efforts demonstrate Saudi Arabia’s unwavering commitment to addressing humanitarian needs and providing assistance to communities affected by crises across the globe.
