French President Emmanuel Macron affirmed on Monday the urgent necessity for extensive humanitarian assistance for the residents of the Gaza Strip, emphasizing the critical need to promptly open all border crossings to facilitate the delivery of aid.

In a post on his official "X" account, Macron mentioned that Jordan and France jointly executed a recent air delivery of humanitarian aid directly to the Gaza Strip.

The French embassy in Jordan said that the effort, conducted on Feb. 26, 2024, involved a French Air Force C130 and three Royal Jordanian Air Force aircraft dropping 2.2 tons of food supplies using specialized containers equipped with parachute systems.

The operation builds upon a previous joint airdrop carried out on Jan. 4, 2024, showcasing the ongoing partnership between the two countries in supporting Jordan's crucial role as a regional humanitarian hub for Gaza aid delivery.
