Part of US-Built Gaza Pier swept into sea -Video

Strong waves caused part of the US-built humanitarian aid pier in #Gaza to break off and drift into the sea before a US Navy crew secured it and brought it back ashore, Channel 12 in the Israeli entity reported.

Another ship was then sent to try and extract the stuck vessel, but also got beached

The US-built pier, located southwest of Gaza City, has delivered 97 truckloads of aid since it opened May 17, according to the United Nations, as key land crossings to the enclave remain shuttered.


While welcoming any aid entry, humanitarian groups have said the pier is a far less effective way to bring in aid than the land crossings the Israeli entity has blocked.
