Gaza: The French army carried out a new loading of humanitarian cargo on Tuesday

The second series of airborne assaults in two days. The French military, along with its “Jordanian, Egyptian and Emirati” partners, again dropped humanitarian aid on Tuesday in favor of the Gaza Strip, the Foreign Ministry reported on X (formerly Twitter).

“France remains mobilized more than ever to come to the aid of the people of Gaza in a humanitarian emergency that is worsening every day,” Quai d’Orsay points out, adding that France “continues to demand that Israel immediately open all points passes into Gaza and a massive influx of humanitarian aid.”

This Monday, the French armed forces, in partnership with the Jordanian army, have already carried out four landings. The deliveries included “four C-130 aircraft, including one belonging to the French armed forces,” the Jordanian army said at the time.

Parcels fell into the sea on Monday

In several videos posted on social media, we note that some of the packages parachuted on Monday ended up at sea, forcing Palestinian civilians to organize to collect the pallets. An Air Force source told RFI that “the guidance was by gravity, without a GPS guidance system, and that it was carried out over the sea to ensure that if the pallet fell, it would not injure anyone on the ground.” parachute malfunction.”

France and Jordan already carried out a joint operation of this type earlier this year, dropping seven tons of humanitarian aid intended for a Jordanian field hospital set up in the Gaza Strip. Since the outbreak of the October 7 war between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, Jordan has carried out sixteen humanitarian and medical aid operations, targeting, in particular, a Jordanian field hospital in the northern Palestinian territory.

The humanitarian situation continues to deteriorate in the Gaza Strip, where the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Aid (Ocha) warned on Saturday of the “threat of mass famine” due to a lack of sufficient water and food supplies.

Human rights NGOs Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch on Monday accused Israel of continuing to restrict humanitarian aid despite demands from the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to do everything possible to prevent genocide in the Gaza Strip. In November, Israel said it had coordinated the release of humanitarian aid from Jordan.
