GAZA — After promising to provide more aid to Gaza as the region continues in a war with Israel, the United States has airdropped its first round of meals.

Military planes dropped about 30,000 meals Saturday. And, President Biden says this offering will not be the last.

Palestinian people who remain in the region have struggled to access the food, water, and medical supplies needed to survive since this war began. Earlier this week, hundreds were killed or hurt while trying to access aid trucks.

War between Israel and Palestine most recently started last October, after Hamas – a Palestinian militant group – took Israel by surprise.

While Western leaders primarily showed their support for Israel at that time, many have since criticized the “humanitarian crisis” that has reportedly led to the deaths of more than 30,000 people in Gaza.
