A Greek military C-130 aircraft carrying humanitarian aid departed from the Elefsina airport for the Gaza Strip on Monday morning.
The Gaza-bound aircraft left at approximately 9:30 am, with a cargo of humanitarian aid to alleviate the suffering of the civilian population caught up in the conflict zone.

The aid includes pharmaceutical and medical supplies collected by the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Health and with the support of the Panhellenic Union of Pharmaceutical Industries.

The humanitarian mission was organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in cooperation with the Egyptian authorities.

Israel followed up its heavy bombing campaign, which killed scores of militants and civilians, with a ground operation into the slither of land, which hosts about 2 million Palestinians – it is among the most densely-populated pieces of land in the world – after a terrorist attack by Hamas militants on October 7 killed about 1,400 Israelis and foreign nationals.
