Qatar, France broker deal to allow more humanitarian aid to enter Gaza
By Zoey Sky // Apr 08, 2024

Palestinians and the estimated 100 hostages still held in the Gaza Strip by the terrorist group Hamas have received medicines and other essential supplies as part of a mediation deal brokered by Qatar and France.

In a statement released in January, Qatar's Foreign Ministry reported that 63 aircraft are shipping about 1,958 tons of medicines, food items and other vital supplies into Gaza thanks to a Qatari-led mediation deal between Hamas and Israel.

Qatari Foreign Ministry spokesperson Majed al-Ansari said that the humanitarian aid has arrived, but he didn't explain whether it reached the intended recipients.

Al-Ansari added that medicine and aid entered the Gaza Strip "in implementation of the agreement" for the benefit of the civilians in the Strip, including hostages. He added that Qatar and its regional and international partners, "[continue] mediation efforts at the political and humanitarian levels."

Al-Ansari added that Qatar is still actively negotiating with both parties, but he did not give further details on what the discussions are about.

In a post on X, Moussa Abu Marzouk, a senior Hamas official, announced that the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) delivered the medicines to hospitals serving all parts of Gaza. He explained that for every crate of supplies sent for the hostages, 1,000 boxes of medicine would be sent to aid Palestinians.

The deal was the result of intervention by Qatar and France, who brokered a deal between Israel and Hamas to send medicine and humanitarian aid to the "most affected areas" of Gaza while also providing aid to the hostages. According to estimates, at least 45 of the remaining 100 hostages have chronic illnesses that require medicine and other vitamins to manage.

Qatar's Foreign Ministry also explained that the deal "comes within the framework of the State of Qatar's unwavering support for the brotherly Palestinian people and its full support for them during the current difficult humanitarian conditions."

Most of Gaza could face famine without aid

Senior United Nations officials have advised that Gaza could soon face widespread famine and disease if more aid isn't allowed in soon.

As of writing, Gaza’s health ministry estimates that more than 33,000 people have been killed during the fighting in Gaza, including more than 13,000 children.

The fighting is ongoing across Palestinian territories as Israel continues to advance toward its goal of destroying Hamas and ensuring that the events of Oct. 7, 2023, don't happen again.

Meanwhile, Hamas has announced that it won’t release any more hostages until there is a permanent ceasefire. Both the United States and Israel have ruled that out due to concerns that the terrorist group would exploit a truce to rebuild and attack Israel again.

The last mediation deal brokered by Qatar was a temporary truce in November 2023 in exchange for the release of more than 100 hostages held captive by Hamas, primarily women and children.

During the ceasefire, humanitarian aid has also been transported from Egypt into battle-ravaged Gaza, where 2.3 million people were evacuated amid airstrikes and a military offensive in response to Hamas’ deadly rampage in southern Israel.

The agreement also included freedom for hundreds of Palestinians held captive by Israel. The deal was marked by instances of both Israel and Hamas accusing each other of breaking the ceasefire.

Eventually, the fighting resumed and hasn't stopped since.
