CARACAS (Ma'an) -- The people of Venezuela collected and packaged about 300 tons of humanitarian aid to be sent to the Gaza Strip soon, a Palestinian Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elias Jaua notified his Palestinian counterpart Riyad al-Maliki during a meeting at the former's office in the Venezuelan capital Caracas, according to a statement.

During the meeting which was held Tuesday, al-Maliki updated Jaua on the most urgent humanitarian aids needed to bring life back to the Palestinian coastal enclave.

After the meeting, the two ministers left to Caracas international airport to officially announce the departure of the first plane carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza.

A military plane took off at 13:41 p.m. heading to al-Ismailiya airport in Egypt. Venezuelan Minister of Defense Admiral Carmen Melendez attended the ceremony.

More planes will take off in the coming days and the whole amount of aid will then be sent to the Gaza Strip via Egypt's Rafah crossing.

BRAVO Venezuela !!! You got the balls to stand for humanity which the american and european politicians don't. I know for sure that american and european citizens have a completely different opinion as oppose to their politicians. But PLEASE KEEP UP THIS BRAVE DECISION TO SUPPORT GAZA AND WORLD WILL FOLLOW YOU SOON. Cheers!

To what Venezuelan charity may I address my contribution? I totally admire Venezuela in its effort against much of the face of world opinion. Please know that all Americans ARE NOT behind the destructive forces that continually bring Gaza to its knees. One day, I am certain, THE TABLES WILL TURN!!!
Good luck where the flotillas could not.
