The Emirati aid convoy comprises 14 trucks carrying over 300 tonnes of humanitarian aid, including tents, medical supplies, and various food items.

The UAE continues to provide humanitarian support to the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, alleviate their suffering, and provide their basic needs.
