A second German military aid plane carrying medical equipment and medicines destined for the Gaza Strip arrived at the Martyr Muwaffaq Salti Air Base - Al-Azraq today, Tuesday.

Welcoming the plane upon its arrival at the base was Assistant Director General of Royal Medical Services for Medical Affairs and Regions, Brigadier Doctor Sahel Al-Hamouri, and the German Ambassador to Amman, Dr. Bertram von Moltke, who stated that "Germany is utilizing all available channels to provide humanitarian assistance and alleviate the suffering of people in Gaza.”

“The field hospitals affiliated with the Jordanian Armed Forces - Arab Army are essential to aid Palestinian casualties and save lives, and we are proud to support their courageous work,” he added.

Dr. Moltke pointed out that since October, the German government has tripled its humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people and sent several relief planes to the region, in addition to continuous diplomatic efforts to ensure greater humanitarian aid delivery to Gaza and achieve a sustainable ceasefire.

This aid reaffirms the close bilateral relations between the two friendly countries and supports Jordan's humanitarian efforts to support the people and brethren in Gaza, alleviating their suffering due to the difficult conditions of war, and its important pivotal role in unifying international efforts and delivering aid to the sector.

The Armed Forces affirm their continuous provision of all forms of support and assistance to the people in the Gaza Strip since the beginning of the war.

In coordination with the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization, they have operated an airlift using Royal Jordanian Air Force aircraft to El Arish International Airport, which has amounted to 42 planes so far, in addition to 11 airdrop operations, some of which were carried out in partnership and coordination with several countries and humanitarian organizations, to support the health sector and enable it to provide medical services to patients, casualties, and the injured.
