In a significant relief effort, the United States Central Command teamed up with the Royal Jordanian Air Force on March 2, 2024. They conducted a humanitarian airdrop in Gaza from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. local time. This mission aimed to support civilians caught in the conflict.

Specialized aircraft, including U.S. Air Force and RJAF C-130s, were deployed. They were loaded with essential food supplies. Trained Army Soldiers ensured the safe delivery of these supplies from the air.

A remarkable total of 38,000 meals were airdropped along Gaza's coastline. This allowed civilians easy access to the much-needed aid.

The Department of Defense led this mission. It is part of broader U.S. efforts to assist those in Gaza. Plans for more airdrops are underway, indicating a commitment to sustained support.

The initiative not only focuses on aerial aid but also aims to increase land-based aid delivery. This multifaceted approach seeks to ensure continuous support reaches Gaza's people.
