Pakistan used a special Pakistan Air Force flight from Noor Khan Air Base on Sunday to deliver the fifth shipment of relief supplies to the beleaguered Palestinian enclave of Gaza.
Warm tents, tarpaulins, blankets, medical and surgical equipment, dry food, and hygiene kits are included in the shipment in line with the needs in Gaza.
The supplies will be flown by PAF C-130 to Al Arish, Egypt, where they will be accepted by the Pakistani ambassador and then delivered to their final destination.
At the departure ceremony at Noor Khan Air Base were officials from the Ministry of External Affairs, the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), and the armed forces.
A sixth batch of relief supplies has also been organized by NDMA, and it is scheduled to leave Karachi on February 6.
There will be 100 tons of supplies in the batch for the Gaza population. Pakistan has so far sent five flights carrying 230 tons of humanitarian aid to the suffering people of Gaza.
As new assistance supplies have been organized, Pakistan remains firm in its support of its Palestinian brothers and sisters at this trying time.
Pakistan sent the fourth delivery of humanitarian supplies to Gaza earlier on January 14 from Noor Khan Air Base.
About 20 tons of necessary supplies, including hygiene kits, dry food items, and surgical and medical gear, were included in the shipment.
