US Restores Previously Damaged Gaza’s Aid Pier

The United States Central Command (CENTCOM) on Friday announced the successful repair of a damaged pier off the coast of Gaza, allowing for the delivery of humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza.

The section of the canal connecting Gaza Beach to the mainland has been repaired nearly two weeks after being severely damaged by strong storms. The impairment resulted in a significant disruption to the delivery route, which was already experiencing challenges.

CENTCOM has confirmed that the pier was reestablished at approximately 2:15 p.m. Gaza time.

“In coming days, CENTCOM will facilitate the movement of vital food and other emergency supplies, in support of the U.S. Agency for International Development”, the CENTCOM said in a statement.

On March 8, US President Joe Biden authorized the construction of a sea route for the delivery of humanitarian aid to Palestinians, despite Israeli restrictions due to the ongoing conflict in the region.

The initial construction cost of the pier was estimated at $320 million. However, the Pentagon (US Department of Defense) has announced that the expense has been reduced to $230 million due to the United Kingdom donations and the cost of procuring trucks and other necessary equipment being “lower than expected.”
