The ship carrying food from Cyprus arrived in Gaza on Friday, according to Reuters. The ship Open Arms, carried approximately 200 tons of humanitarian aid for the population in the Gaza Strip.

The war in Gaza began on Oct. 7 when Hamas fighters rampaged into Israel killing 1,200 people and seizing 253 hostages according to Israeli tallies.
