US C-130 planes dropped about 38,000 meals in Gaza.

The United States carried out the first air drop of humanitarian aid in Gaza, which included more than 30,000 meals via parachutes dropped by three military aircraft, amid some criticism from humanitarian organizations and people who were at the drop site.

The operation, which was carried out in cooperation with the Jordanian Air Force, is the first of many operations announced by US President Joe Biden, after about 112 people were killed last Thursday as crowds gathered to reach an aid convoy outside Gaza City.

Health officials in Gaza confirmed that the victims who were taken to hospitals were hit by heavy-caliber ammunition, while Israel says that most of the Palestinians were killed in a stampede, indicating that it is conducting an investigation into the incident.

The first American airdrop comes at a time when a prominent American official revealed the framework of a six-week ceasefire agreement in Gaza.
