The Minister also thanked the Royal Air Force (RAF) and the British Army. “We will continue to seek every opportunity to provide aid to Gaza by air, sea and land,” he said.

An RAF A400M aircraft flew from the Jordanian capital Amman to Gaza to deliver supplies. Packages include rice, flour, oil, baby food, tinned food and water.
