Biden’s Gaza pier to be permanently dismantled

by ian

It’s the end of the line for the US aid pier in Gaza.

US Officials confirmed this week that the $230 million pier will be permanently dismantled following a long list of setbacks. Although the Biden administration had hoped to keep the pier open through September, it’s been unable to handle the rough seas around the Gaza Strip.

Officials say the pier will be temporarily reassembled one last time for use over the next several days, after which it will be permanently removed.
