2nd humanitarian aid ship from Cyprus preparing to depart for Gaza


Hundreds of tons of food supplies are being loaded on ship at Larnaca Port, says charity.

Another ship, which will carry humanitarian aid from the Republic of Cyprus to Gaza, is planned to set sail after the loading process, a charity said on Saturday.

Hundreds of tons of food supplies, including pallets of dates, “which hold spiritual significance during Ramadan,” were being loaded on a ship at Larnaca Port, US-based charity World Central Kitchen said on its X account.

It did not share further information.

According to Alithia newspaper's website, the amount of humanitarian aid to be sent to Gaza via the second ship has been determined to be 500 tons.

On Friday, the first humanitarian vessel, carrying 200 tons of food donated by World Central Kitchen, arrived on Gaza's shores.
