A UK plane carrying 21 tonnes of humanitarian aid for Gaza is on its way to Egypt, the Ministry of Defence has announced.

The Royal Air Force C-17 aircraft is carrying 76,800 wound care packs donated from medical stockpiles, as well as 1,350 water filters and 2,560 solar-powered lights – both designed to support a family of five.

The aid comes as part of a £30m aid package for Gaza announced by UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak earlier this week and will be distributed by the Egyptian Red Crescent, the MoD says.
