Germany : Aid landing on Gaza and pro-Palestine rally in Berlin

The German Ministry of Defense announced the implementation of airdrops for humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza in an international campaign in which Germany participated for the first time, while the capital Berlin witnessed a demonstration in solidarity with Palestine with the participation of hundreds of people.

The German Ministry of Defense announced on Saturday the implementation of 5 airdrops of 4 tons of humanitarian aid by parachuting in the Gaza Strip for the first time.

German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said in a statement that "the German Air Force dropped humanitarian aid in Gaza for the first time."

The statement explained that "the planes used to land humanitarian aid through parachutes were stationed in the French city of Évreux."

According to the German Air Force, a C-130 helped parachute 4 tons of much-needed food in Gaza.

"In this way, we can contribute to ensuring the delivery of much-needed medicines and food to the people of Gaza, who are struggling," the German minister said.

Earlier on Saturday, the Jordanian army announced in a statement the implementation of 5 air landings of medical and food aid in the northern Gaza Strip, with the participation of Egypt, the United States, and Germany, which is participating for the first time.

Demonstration in Support of Palestine

Meanwhile, the German capital, Berlin, witnessed a demonstration in solidarity with Palestine on Saturday, with the participation of hundreds of people.

The demonstrators gathered in front of the Sonnenali train station in the Neukölln region, organized by Palestinian parties in Germany.

Demonstrators waving Palestinian flags headed to Herman Square.

They held signs with phrases such as: "Stop the genocide in Gaza," "Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine," "cease fire now," and "Free Palestine."

They also lifted empty cooking utensils, children's dolls and bags of flour to express the hunger and suffering of children in the Gaza Strip.

The demonstration took place amid tight security from German police.

Israeli occupying forces have restricted the entry of aid into Gaza, leading to shortages of food, medicine and fuel supplies and producing a famine that has begun to claim the lives of children and the elderly in the enclave, which is home to some 2.3 million Palestinians, including some 2 million displaced by the war, and which Israel has been under siege for 17 years.

Since October 7, 2023, the Israeli occupation has been waging a devastating war on Gaza, leaving tens of thousands of civilians dead and injured, most of them children and women, according to Palestinian and UN statements, which led to her appearance before the International Court of Justice on charges of committing "genocide."
