In a post on X, he said that the aid consisted of 400 tonnes of tents, food, medicine and blankets, which would be shipped to Egypt before being delivered to Gaza by the Egyptian Red Crescent.

“Pakistan remains committed to addressing the urgent humanitarian needs of our brothers and sisters in Gaza,” the foreign minister said.

Former foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has reaffirmed “unwavering support” to the people of Palestine.

Ambassador of the State of Palestine Ahmed Jawad Amin Rabei called on the PPP chairman at Bilawal House. MNA Aseefa Bhutto-Zardari and Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah were also present.

“Israel’s actions in Gaza have created a history of atrocities that have shamed humanity. The Pakistani nation stands united on the issue of Palestine, and our hearts beat with the Palestinians,” said the PPP chairman, according to a statement issued from the Bilawal House.

Ambassador Rabei presented the PPP chairman and his sister Aseefa commemorative photos of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and Yasser Arafat, as well as a photo of Al-Aqsa Mosque and a commemorative shield.

Overall, Israeli strikes in Gaza have killed 37 Palestinians and wounded 68 over the past 24 hours, according Palestinian health authorities.

Israeli strikes hit the southern city of Rafah, where over one million Palestinians are sheltering, as well as Al-Nuseirat in central Gaza, where at least five houses were destroyed, and the Al-Jabalia area in the north, health officials and Hamas media said.

In Rafah, a strike hit a house and killed a father, daughter and pregnant mother, Hamas and Palestinian media outlets said. Doctors at the Kuwaiti hospital were able to save the baby, medics said, making the baby the family’s only surviving member.

Five other Palestinians were killed in a separate Israeli air strike on the city before midnight, health officials said. The Israeli military said troops were carrying out raids in central Gaza, where they were engaged in close-quarter combat with Palestinian fighters.

In Gaza, where fighting has continued despite the withdrawal of most of Israel’s combat forces earlier this month from southern areas, the death toll passed 34,000, Palestinian health authorities said.
