DeSantis Sends Cargo Planes Full Of Supplies To Israel

 Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced on Tuesday that his administration has sent two large planes full of supplies to Israel as the country wages war against the Palestinian terrorists responsible for murdering 1,400+ Israelis last week.

The Republican presidential candidate sent 85 pallets of donated supplies that are expected to reach Israel in the coming hours.

“With the lack of leadership in Washington, we are stepping up to help our allies in Israel who are in need of supplies and our support,” DeSantis said a statement. “As we continue to bring back Americans who were stranded in Israel when the war began, we will also keep sending the necessary health care supplies for Israel to care for those who have been injured.”

A total of 85 pallets of supplies identified as critically needed by hospitals based in Israel were packed and prepared for shipping in less than five days.

Medical supplies that were donated included 735 ace bandages, approximately 5,000 hospital gowns, 84 IV kits, 30,000+ needles, 30,000+ syringes, 57 ventilators, and 10,000+ boxes of surgical gloves.

In addition to medical supplies, Florida also donated: 1,000+ children’s toys, 300+ sleeping bags, 1,000+ hygiene products, and 2,000+ articles of clothing.

“Thanks to the decisive action of Governor DeSantis, the Division was able to quickly coordinate with our Israeli partners and compile needed supplies,” said Florida Division of Emergency Management Executive Director Kevin Guthrie. “After working with the Israeli Consulate, medical partners and hospitals in Israel, the Division identified what items were most in need to reduce inundation and increase efficiency.”

The shipment of supplies comes after DeSantis welcomed home nearly 300 Americans this week who were evacuated out of Israel on flights that were organized by DeSantis’ administration.


“We’re here at Tampa airport. We are having our first flight of people being rescued from Israel and it’s landed,” he said on Sunday night. “Over 260 people that wanted to get back to the United States and couldn’t do it … so we stepped up and led. We’re happy to be able to deliver this.”
