Video : Four US army vessels run aground near Gaza pier

Four US Army vessels supporting the temporary pier built to deliver aid to Gaza have run aground in heavy seas and Israel is aiding a recovery effort, US Central Command (CENTCOM) said Saturday.

“The vessels broke free from their moorings and two vessels are now anchored on the beach near the pier. The third and fourth vessels are beached on the coast of Israel near Ashkelon,” the statement said.

“No US personnel will enter Gaza. No injuries have been reported and the pier remains fully functional,” it continued, adding that the Israel navy is assisting with recovering the vessels.
