Jordan on Sunday sent an aid convoy to the Gaza Strip, which faces serious humanitarian crisis under Israeli siege, according to Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization (JHCO).

Ten trucks laden with food and medical supplies have crossed King Hussein Bridge leading to the Gaza Strip, said Rajab Zubaydah, the assistant of JHCO secretary general, adding that another 22 trucks laden with humanitarian aid are expected to depart on Monday.

Zubaydah said that the convoy is sent in cooperation with the Armed Forces Crisis Management Center and the Palestinian National Authority.

JHCO had sent, with the contribution of a number of local and Arab aid agencies, 245 aid convoys to alleviate the suffering of Gazans.
