EUA planea entregar ayuda a Gaza por mar

By Jordi Bou

April 30, 2024 - El ejército de EUA construye un gran muelle flotante frente a la costa de Gaza para ayudar a llevar más ayuda a la sitiada Franja de Gaza.

Under the plan by the U.S. military, aid will be loaded on to commercial ships in Cyprus to sail to the floating platform now under construction off Gaza.

Pallets will be loaded on to trucks, which will be loaded on to smaller ships that travel to a floating two-lane causeway. The 550-metre causeway will lead to shore.

U.S. officials say the pier will be operational by early May but there will be no US boots on the ground in Gaza.

The U.S. says that once the system is operational, up to 150 trucks of aid could be delivered a day with two million meals, enough to feed almost all of the territory’s 2.3 million population.
