Indonesia and Jordan discuss plans to send aid to the West Bank

Jakarta (ANTARA) –

Indonesian Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto and Jordanian King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein discussed plans to expand the delivery of humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people in the West Bank in a recent meeting.

Head of the Ministry’s Public Relations Bureau, Brigadier General Edwin Adrian Sumantha, Wednesday, informed that the two leaders discussed this issue after attending a summit on the humanitarian crisis in Gaza in Amman, Jordan, on Tuesday (11 June 2024).

Sumantha said that Prabowo and King Abdullah II also highlighted the West Bank because the region was also affected by Israeli aggression in Gaza.

In addition, during the meeting, they discussed the possibility of continuing sending air aid to Gaza.

“Indonesia is willing and ready to contribute in all efforts to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinian people, and we hope to work together with countries in the region,” said Prabowo.

On April 9, Indonesia and Jordan dropped aid into Gaza by air using the Indonesian Air Force’s C-130 J Super Hercules aircraft.

In the aid delivery operation, 900 human air umbrellas (PUO) and 50 goods air umbrellas (PUB) were deployed containing humanitarian aid packages for the Palestinian community in Gaza.

Sumantha said that permission to fly in Gaza airspace is difficult to obtain and requires permission from the Israeli authorities, and Indonesia and Israel do not have diplomatic relations.

Therefore, cooperation with Jordan is very important because the country borders Israel and Palestine and has diplomatic relations with both.

Indonesia is the second country in Southeast Asia after Singapore to provide direct aid from the air to the Palestinian people in Gaza.

Prabowo visited Amman on June 10 to attend a summit on Gaza.

During the summit, he outlined four points regarding Indonesia’s position on Gaza. First, Indonesia is committed to increasing financial support to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).

Second, Indonesia is ready to send more medical personnel, build field hospitals, send hospital aid ships, and send more air aid to Gaza if needed.

Third, Indonesia is ready to treat up to a thousand patients from Gaza in Indonesia and send them home after the situation returns to normal. Fourth, Indonesia is ready to provide post-traumatic care to child victims of aggression in Gaza, organize their education, and send them home when the situation in Gaza returns to normal.
