US carries out first air drop of aid for Gaza | BBC News

The US has carried out its first air drop of aid for Gaza, with more than 30,000 meals parachuted in by three military planes.

The operation was carried out in conjunction with the Jordanian air force, the US Central Command said.

US officials say the drop was the first of many announced by President Joe Biden on Friday.

C-130s dropped more than 38,000 meals along the coastline of Gaza, US Central Command said in a statement.

Other countries including Britain, France, Egypt and Jordan have previously airdropped aid into Gaza, but this is the first by the US.
