Aid No Longer Entering Gaza by Sea as U.S. Pier Falters

HeadlineJun 17, 2024

In more news from Gaza, aid shipments are no longer coming in by sea to Gaza. The U.S. military has temporarily removed the pier it just built due to rough seas. This comes just over a week after the pier was reattached after the first pier was damaged in a storm.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, Israel announced it would pause attacks along an aid route in southern Gaza during daylight hours, but the head of UNRWA says operationally nothing has changed in southern Gaza. Israel’s announcement came a day after fighters from Hamas killed eight Israeli soldiers in Rafah in an ambush.
