Aid ship’s departure from Cyprus delayed

A ship carrying 200 tonnes of food aid for Gaza remained docked in Cyprus on Sunday night due to “technical difficulties”, according to Cypriot radio (RIK).

The Open Arms ship, which was expected to leave the port of Larnaca on Sunday afternoon, may not leave until Monday morning, RIK said.

Once the ship sets off, its journey is expected to take some two days.

  • The government of Cyprus has previously said a team that includes Israeli officials will inspect the ship’s cargo before its departure.
