Saudi Arabia, in cooperation with the Jordanian Hashemite Charity Organization (JHCO) and the Jordanian Hashemite Armed Forces (Arab Army), conducted an airdrop of food aid to the Gaza Strip, announced Advisor at the Saudi Royal Court and Supervisor General of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Rabeeah on Saturday.

The operation sought to circumvent the closure of the border crossings by the Israeli forces, which had previously hampered the entry of humanitarian aid to the people in the coastal enclave.

In remarks to the Saudi Press Agency, he said Saudi Arabia, through KSrelief, provided Jordan with parachutes and dedicated networks for airdrops, weighing 30 tons, to facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid to Gaza.

Dr. Al Rabeeah underscored Saudi Arabia's commitment to supporting humanitarian efforts in Gaza and to assisting the Palestinian people in any conceivable way under the leadership of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Crown Prince and Prime Minister.

He called for the opening of border crossings to facilitate the delivery of substantial humanitarian assistance to the Palestinian people.

Moreover, he highlighted the donation campaign that was carried out, under the directives of King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed, to support the defenseless Palestinian people in Gaza.

To date, the campaign has collected over $184 million. The Kingdom also operated an air bridge consisting of 54 planes and a sea bridge consisting of eight ships still operating.

Dr. Al Rabeeah expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the Saudi government, led by King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed, for the exceptional and high-quality humanitarian assistance they have provided to support international efforts and alleviate the suffering of the brotherly Palestinian people.

The Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), Jasem Mohamed Albudaiwi, strongly condemned the Knesset's approval of a bill rejecting the establishment of a Palestinian state, the Saudi Press Agency said on Thursday.
"The decision of the Israeli occupation forces is a clear violation of international resolutions related to the Palestinian cause and confirms their desire and continued efforts to fuel tension and threaten security and stability in the region and the world”, said Albudaiwi in a statement.
He called on the international community to reject and condemn this unjust decision, which reflects the Israeli occupation forces' intentions to expand the conflict and their unwillingness to achieve stability and peace in the region.
Albudaiwi reiterated the GCC countries' positions on the Palestinian cause, supporting the establishment of an independent Palestinian state within the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, and supporting the Palestinian people in obtaining all their legitimate rights.
