Egypt sends humanitarian aid to Sudan via two military planes. Egyptian military spokesman
Laden with tons of humanitarian aid, two more military planes took off from Egypt to Sudan Monday as part of an airlift that would last for several days between the two countries to help alleviate burdens on Sudanese citizens.
The aid is offered by the Defense Ministry and the Egyptian Red Crescent Society upon directives by President Abdel Fattah El Sisi to support the Sudanese people at times of conflict and hardships, according to a statement by the Egyptian military spokesman.
Sudanese officials have, meanwhile, voiced gratitude and appreciation for efforts exerted by Cairo to help the Sudanese people.
Such humanitarian assistance from the Egyptian side contributes to deepening the extending historical ties between Egypt and Sudan, the Sudanese officials added.
Egypt had earlier also sent two military planes loaded with tons of humanitarian aid to Sudan, according to a statement by the spokesman on Sunday.
