Indonesian Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto, with KSAL Admiral TNI Muhammad Ali, launched TNI hospital ship KRI dr. Radjiman Wedyoningrat-992 from Jakarta for a Goodwill/Port Visit cruise to Egypt, delivering vital humanitarian aid to Gaza.

Minister Prabowo expressed deep concern for the severe suffering faced by the people of Gaza due to attacks surpassing humanitarian limits and violating international law.

Highlighting the significance of vigilance and solidarity in the mission, he expressed confidence in the Task Force Commander and Ship Commander, emphasizing their training, discipline, and enthusiasm for a successful completion of the humanitarian duty.

The humanitarian assistance provided includes food, blankets, clothes, baby equipment, women's clothing, milk, field tents, cleaning supplies, mineral water, and religious equipment.
