NEW-DELHI: India has taken a compassionate step by providing humanitarian assistance to the Palestinian people affected by the ongoing conflict between Hamas and Israel in Gaza. Approximately 6.5 tonnes of medical aid and 32 tonnes of disaster relief materials have been dispatched by India to reach the region through Egypt. An Indian Air Force (IAF) C-17 flight, laden with relief supplies, departed for Egypt's Al-Arish airport.

The Aid includes critical, life-saving medicines, surgical supplies, tents, sleeping bags, tarpaulins, sanitation facilities, water purification tablets, and other essential items. Arindam Bagchi, the spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs, announced, "An IAF C-17 flight carrying about 6.5 tons of medical aid and 32 tons of disaster relief materials for the people of Palestine departed for Al-Arish Airport in Egypt." These supplies will subsequently be transported to Palestine via the Rafah border crossing, which connects to Gaza.
