U.S. Resumes Air Drops of Aid into Gaza

CENTCOM deputy commander said deliveries had been “suspended due to the kinetic operations happening in the north.”

The Department of Defense announced that over 10 metric tons of humanitarian aid were dropped by a U.S. cargo plane into northern Gaza over the weekend. The deliveries resumed after a pause due to Israeli Defense Force operations and weather.

U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) stated that the airdrop provided “life-saving humanitarian assistance in northern Gaza” and that “the U.S. has airdropped more than 1,050 metric tons of humanitarian assistance.”

CENTCOM continued, “These airdrops are part of a sustained effort, and we continue to plan follow-on aerial deliveries.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Lloyd Austin to seek God’s leading as he heads the Department of Defense.
  • For General Eric Kurilla as he commands the U.S. Central Command.
  • For the humanitarian aid to reach the Palestinians for whom it is intended instead of being captured by Hamas.
