The U.S. Central Command was to tow the temporary pier, used for the delivery of humanitarian aid to Gaza via the port of Larnaca, Cyprus, under the “Amalthea” plan, back to Ashdod, in Israel, due to high seas expected this weekend, the Pentagon said. Since May 17, Centcom has assisted in the delivery of more than 8,831 metric tons of humanitarian aid to the shore of Gaza for onward distribution by humanitarian organisations, deputy Pentagon press secretary, Sabrina Singh, said during a briefing on Friday.
