A total of 400 tons of humanitarian aid from the United Arab Emirates arrived today in Israel via Cyprus.

According to a statement by the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the said aid was sent in cooperation with the American Aid for Near Eastern Refugees (ANERA).

We will provide as much of this aid as possible to the north of the Strip, where many are at risk of starvation. Anera has provided more than 24 million meals to Gaza since mid-October and this partnership will help provide millions more meals at this critical time,” he said.
