Gaza aid pier halts deliveries after damage

by ian

Aid deliveries to Gaza continue to face obstacles. This time, rough seas damaged the US-built pier, which is now under repair. As a result, Washington had to pause aid deliveries to the war-torn region.

Pentagon Deputy Press Secretary Sabrina Singh said the repairs will likely take over a week. But she added that the aid is ready to go.

The temporary pier off the coast of Gaza was constructed so that aid could continue into the region, as land deliveries have become difficult to carry out without interceptions. However, aid workers criticized the pier for its lack of efficiency; complaints that have become compacted by a lengthy repair after only two weeks of operation.

However, when a reporter asked Singh if the US-led aid effort was ultimately a failure, she strongly denied it.
