US Central Command announced Saturday that Air Force C-130s, working with Jordan's air force, dropped containers packed with more than 38,000 meals onto the besieged enclave. The containers were dropped by parachute over the besieged enclave's Mediterranean coastline to allow "civilian access to the critical aid," Central Command said.
