How US airdrops of humanitarian aid into Gaza can help and why the operation is complicated

AP White House Correspondent

The White House warns that there are few military operations that are more complicated than humanitarian assistance airdrops. Pentagon planners will identify drop locations aiming to balance getting the aid closest to where it’s needed without putting those on the ground in harm’s way from the drops themselves.
