Israel-Palestine Conflict: India Sends Humanitarian Aid To Gaza

Date:

New Delhi: In response to the escalating crisis in the region, India has dispatched humanitarian assistance, including vital supplies like life-saving medicines, surgical equipment, tents, sleeping bags, tarpaulins, sanitary necessities, and water purification tablets.

An Indian Air Force C17 aircraft carrying the relief supplies departed from the Hindon airbase at 8 a.m., with the intended destination being Gaza via Egypt’s Rafah Crossing Point.

Taking to X, Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Arindam Bagchi stated, “India sends Humanitarian aid to the people of Palestine! An IAF C-17 flight carrying nearly 6.5 tonnes of medical aid and 32 tonnes of disaster relief material for the people of Palestine departs for El-Arish airport in Egypt. The material includes essential life-saving medicines, surgical items, tents, sleeping bags, tarpaulins, sanitary utilities, water purification tablets among other necessary items.”



India has sent humanitarian aid to Palestine amid the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas. Israel launched a counter-offensive against Hamas after the latter launched a surprise attack against the former on October 7.

Earlier on Saturday, as many as 20 trucks carrying humanitarian aid were finally allowed to enter the Gaza Strip through Egypt’s Rafah border. However, World Health Organisation Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned that “needs are far higher” in the enclave, which has more than 2 million people.
