India Extends a Helping Hand: Aid Dispatched to Gaza Amid Israel-Hamas Conflict

38 Tonnes of Relief Material Sent to Ease the Humanitarian Crisis in the Region

India on Sunday dispatched a military aircraft with 38 tonnes of relief material for the Palestinians in Gaza, who are facing a humanitarian crisis due to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas. The aid includes medicines, surgical items, tents, sleeping bags, and other essentials.

The Indian Air Force (IAF) C-17 flight left from Ghaziabad’s Hindon airbase for Egypt’s El-Arish airport, from where the aid will be sent to Gaza via the Rafah border crossing. External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi announced the development on his X (formerly Twitter) account. He said India was sending humanitarian aid to the people of Palestine.

The aid comes three days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and expressed his concern over the violence and terrorism in the Region. He also reiterated India’s long-standing principled position on the Israel-Palestine issue.

The war between Israel and Hamas, which began on October 7, has killed over 4,000 people and injured thousands more. Israel has launched a massive counter-offensive against the Islamic militant group, which has fired rockets at Israeli cities and towns.
