The Jordanian Armed Forces carried out 10 humanitarian aid operations in northern Gaza this Saturday.

According to a statement released by the army, the airstrike was carried out with the cooperation of the United States, France, Egypt and Belgium.

“Jordan continues its efforts and efforts to send more medical, relief and food aid to the people of Gaza City, with the aim of compensating for the acute shortage of food and medicine resulting from the Israeli war,” it said. Notice

Jordan says it has conducted 35 aid airstrikes in Gaza since November 6.

Video obtained by CNN on Saturday shows several military transport planes dropping humanitarian aid in areas of Gaza.

A little context: While airdrops are a quick way to get supplies to a conflict zone, aid agencies say their drawbacks outweigh their benefits.

For starters, they are more expensive. The World Food Program says airdrops cost seven times more than ground deliveries. They also have very low delivery capacity.

“Aid workers are always complaining that airdrops are good photo opportunities but a terrible way to deliver aid,” Richard Cowan, the United Nations director of the International Crisis Group, told CNN.

Aid workers are urging the United States to pressure its ally Israel to lift its strict blockade of the enclave, which has kept Palestinians on the brink of starvation.
