GCC chief deplores Gaza killings

AMMAN: The Jordanian Royal Air Force has carried out an airdrop of medical appliances and equipment provided by the Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) into the Gaza Strip. The move is mainly meant to mitigate the anguish and woes of the people of the Palestinian enclave amid unbearable humanitarian circumstances involving a serious shortage of medical supplies, Chairman of the Jordan Red Crescent Society (JRC) Mohammad Al-Hadeed told KUNA on Saturday.

Kuwait-dispatched medical packages have been air-dropped into a Jordanian field hospital in southern Gaza, he said, adding that Jordan seeks hard to ensure smooth and easy delivery of humanitarian aid to the Palestinian territory. In this context, the JRC chief voiced sincere thanks and gratitude to Kuwait for its role in alleviating the agony of Gazans. The Jordanian Royal Air Forces have already carried out a series of relief aid airdrops into the Gaza Strip amid the continued Zionist aggression on the territory.

Meanwhile, Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Jasem Al-Budaiwi has strongly condemned the Zionist occupation forces’ targeting of innocent Palestinians while they were receiving aid in the Gaza Strip. In a statement, Al-Budaiwi said, “It is a new crime in a series of crimes committed by the Zionist occupation against Palestinians.” He called on the international community to take action against these dangerous crimes and violations committed by the Zionist occupation against the Palestinian people.

The chief reiterated the necessity of reaching an immediate ceasefire and allowing urgently the entry of humanitarian and relief aid into the Strip, according to the statement. Earlier in the day, the Zionist occupation opened fire at crowds of civilians waiting for humanitarian aid in northern Gaza, killing more than 112 Palestinians and wounding hundreds others. — KUNA
