Grant Shapps authorises first UK airdrop in Gaza

The UK has airdropped food supplies into Gaza for the first time as the Defence Secretary urged Israel to allow more aid into the war-torn territory.

Grant Shapps authorised the airdrop following an assessed reduction in threat to the military mission and risk to civilians.

An RAF A400M aircraft flew from Amman to drop the supplies along Gazaโ€™s northern coastline as part of a Jordanian-led international aid mission, according to the Ministry of Defence.
