The chairman of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi ordered on Wednesday 24/8/2011 that two C130 military transport planes fly to Somalia to deliver humanitarian relief supplies include baby milk, infant formula, rice, sugar, flour and canned food donated by the Armed Forces and the Medical Syndicate in contribution from the Egyptian people to world efforts aimed at assisting the famine- and drought-stricken Somali people.

The stance comes within the framework of Egypt's leading role and its keenness to enhance the cooperation and friendship between peoples.
