UAE sent a new aid ship to Gaza Strip from Larnaca Port.


The United Arab Emirates has announced the dispatch of a new aid shipment to the Gaza Strip, carrying 1,166 tonnes of urgent essential food supplies onboard. This aid was delivered in cooperation with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

The new aid ship, organized approximately two weeks after another consignment, was a collaborative effort with the Agency, along with the United States of America, the Republic of Cyprus, the United Nations, and various international donors, including the European Union. The ship departed from Larnaca Port in Cyprus to the Port of Ashdod and entered the Gaza Strip via the Beit Hanoun crossing in cooperation with American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA).

The UAE is continuing its work in cooperation with international partners to intensify efforts to ensure the flow of aid, its arrival, and distribution through all available means, aiming to alleviate the critical humanitarian conditions faced by the residents of the Gaza Strip. Dispatching relief aid through land, sea, and air demonstrates the UAE’s historic and unwavering commitment to providing humanitarian assistance to the brotherly Palestinians.
