Czechia to release another CZK 10 million in aid to Gaza

Czechia will release an additional CZK 10 million to the World Food Programme for humanitarian aid to Gaza, Foreign Minister Jan Lipavský said on Friday. In January of this year the government allocated CZK 5 million for Palestinian civilians to the same program.

"We cannot stand idly by and watch the worsening humanitarian situation in Gaza, where there is a real threat of famine,” Lipavský wrote on the social network X. The allocation of CZK 5 million for Palestinian civilians through the WFP was announced by President Petr Pavel during his visit to Israel in early January.
