Israel sending six planes with humanitarian aid to Ukraine

Israel is sending six planes with humanitarian aid to Ukraine, and the first plane has already delivered ten tonnes of medicines and medical supplies to Lviv.

According to Ukrinform, the Israeli Embassy in Ukraine reported this on Facebook.

"Israel has opened a humanitarian air bridge for assistance to Ukraine. In the near future, six planes will deliver medicines, medical equipment and food to Ukraine," the statement reads.

The diplomatic mission said the first plane carrying ten tonnes of medicines and medical equipment had already landed in Hungary, from where the cargo was delivered to Lviv.
