Jordan's King Abdullah joins aid airdrop to Gaza as humanitarian crisis grows

Jordan's King Abdullah participated in an airdrop of humanitarian aid to Gaza, highlighting his kingdom's role in pushing Israel to enable further efforts to help fend off illness, hunger, and starvation in the war-torn enclave. Jordan has conducted 11 airdrops, with at least two conducted with the French and Dutch air forces, to deliver medical aid. The king is due to meet US President Joe Biden in Washington on Monday to lobby for an immediate ceasefire and to pressure Israel to lift hurdles on delivering more aid to Palestinians. The war between Israel and Hamas has displaced around 85% of Gaza's 2.3 million residents and one in 10 children under five are believed to be acutely malnourished.
