Aid from US pier flows into Gaza, but costs may outweigh benefits

by sam

Humanitarian aid has officially resumed after a brief pause in Gaza. This was confirmed by national security adviser Jake Sullivan yesterday.

The military pier constructed outside of Gaza is expected to eventually bring in the equivalent of 150 truckloads of aid per day. Right now, it is averaging around 90 truckloads.

The U.S. is also collaborating with Israel and the United Nations to provide new truck routes to bring the aid in more efficiently. This was planned after only five of 11 aid trucks made it to Gaza without interceptions over the weekend.

But there is concern that the pier will be much less efficient than previously anticipated. Sullivan mentioned to reporters that there is a problem with ensuring the aid is properly delivered into Gaza.
