EU co-ordinating six new humanitarian aid flights for Gaza

A new EU aid flight departed on 27 October from Copenhagen, carrying 51 tonnes of medicines, medical items, and education supplies on behalf of Unicef to Egypt for people in need in Gaza. The flight is part of 6 upcoming flights of the EU humanitarian air bridge operation transporting essential supplies provided by partners for fast deployment to the field. The EU is funding the total cost of all flights and supporting the co-ordination of operations under the European Humanitarian Response Capacity.

The upcoming flights are scheduled to be rolled out over the next two weeks. Besides UNICEF, among the partners providing the humanitarian cargo there are the World Health Organisation (WHO), the World Food Program (WFP), the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

The delivered aid items will be used to scale-up the humanitarian response for the recent violence escalation affecting people in Gaza, where the already dire situation keeps deteriorating.

A press release is available online.
