Earlier this week, more than 1,400 Israelis were killed by Palestinian terrorists, according to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who said on Tuesday that his administration had deployed two huge planes full of supplies to Israel as part of its campaign against them.
85 pallets of donated supplies were sent by the Republican nominee for president; they should arrive in Israel in the next few 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. 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.” DeSantis said in a new statement.

In less than five days, 85 pallets of supplies that were deemed to be in urgent need by Israeli hospitals were packed and prepped for shipment.
735 ace bandages, around 5,000 hospital gowns, 84 IV kits, more than 30,000 needles and syringes, 57 ventilators, and more than 10,000 packs of surgical gloves were among the medical supplies supplied.
Florida also provided 1,000+ children’s toys, 300+ sleeping bags, 1,000+ sanitary products, and 2,000+ pieces of clothes in addition to the medical supplies.
The delivery of supplies comes just after DeSantis welcomed home this week about 300 Americans who had been evacuated from Israel on aircraft coordinated by his administration.
