UK and Jordan airdrop aid to Gaza hospital

On Wednesday, the British Foreign Office announced that Britain and Jordan delivered four tonnes of aid via airdrop, including medicines, fuel and food to Tal al-Hawa Hospital in northern Gaza.

"Thousands of patients will benefit and the fuel will enable this vital hospital to continue its life-saving work," British Foreign Secretary David Cameron said in a statement.

The aid, financed by the UK, was dispatched by the Jordanian Air Force.

"However, the situation in Gaza is desperate and significantly more aid is needed, and fast. We are calling for an immediate humanitarian pause to allow additional aid into Gaza as quickly as possible and bring hostages home," Cameron said.
