Israeli food and medical equipment company Air Express has said it will begin a fresh-air delivery service in the occupied West Bank.
The company, which was set up in 2012, says it has an agreement with the Palestinian Authority to operate a pilot program to send food and medicines to residents of the West Banks, and has launched a pilot in the Gaza Strip.
The project is the first of its kind to be carried out by an Israeli company outside of the occupied territories.
The aim is to expand the pilot to the entire West Bank, said Air Express chairman Moshe Shapira.
“We’re really excited to do this,” he said in a press release.
“Israel is committed to ending the occupation and establishing a democratic and just society.”
The announcement comes as Israel and the Palestinians are locked in a bitter war, with the two sides exchanging rockets, mortars and mortar shells.
The war has killed hundreds of Palestinians and displaced more than 3 million others.
