More than 569 tonnes of aid already delivered to Gaza from pier, US says

The US military’s Central Command (CENTCOM) has said that more than 569 metric tonnes of humanitarian aid has been delivered via a US-built temporary pier on the Gaza coastline since it opened on Friday.

  • “The United States, United Kingdom, UAE, European Union, and many other partners have donated this humanitarian assistance,” CENTCOM said.

Earlier, we reported that an unnamed UN official told the Reuters news agency that they have not received aid from the pier for two days, with the last delivery to a World Food Programme warehouse in central Gaza coming on Saturday.
