Another UAE aid convoy enters Gaza

WAM

Eleven more trucks carrying humanitarian aid has entered the Gaza Strip as part of the UAE's 'Gallant Knight 3' relief operation.

It's the second such Emirati aid convoy to pass through Egypt's Rafah border crossing this week.

The vehicles are loaded with more than 240 tonnes of relief supplies, including winter clothing, tents, medicines and various food items.

As of February 20, the UAE has provided over 15,800 tonnes of aid as part of 'Gallant Knight 3' to help Palestinian people affected by the war. 

A field hospital and six desalination plants with a production capacity of 1.2 million gallons per day have also been set up in Gaza, while five automatic bakeries were recently sent to the Egyptian city of Al Arish to support Gazans.
