The United States military has started delivering aid to Gaza.

CNN reports that rucks carrying humanitarian aid into Gaza have begun moving ashore after arriving through the floating pier built by the US military.

According to the report, the pier was anchored to a beach in Gaza on Thursday and will be used to funnel aid from various countries into the besieged strip, with all other border crossings closed and a catastrophic humanitarian disaster unfolding inside.

The US, which began building the $320 million pier in late April, has emphasized it is a temporary measure that is “entirely humanitarian in nature and will involve aid commodities donated by some countries and humanitarian organizations.”

No US troops went ashore in Gaza, according to the US Central Command, CENTCOM, statement.

Aid first arrives from abroad in Cyprus before being brought by ship to a floating platform near the Gaza coast, then finally transported to the floating pier and loaded onto trucks to distribute on land.
