Aid Shipments to Gaza Resume after Israeli Aid Workers' Killing

Aid shipments to the besieged Gaza Strip resumed from Cyprus on Friday evening, Cypriot sources reported. The shipments include food supplies for the Palestinian enclave, which had been on hold after Israel killed seven aid workers earlier this month.

The World Central Kitchen, a non-profit organization, had suspended aid operations in Gaza following the April attack to review its activities. This pause also affected direct shipments from Cyprus.

However, on Friday, Cypriot sources confirmed that a small cargo vessel departed from the port of Larnaca carrying aid donated by the United Arab Emirates.

Additionally, the United States has begun construction of a floating jetty off the Mediterranean coast of Gaza, which will facilitate the delivery of aid that has been pre-screened in Cyprus under the supervision of Israeli authorities. While aid destined for Gaza will still be subject to Israeli checkpoints on land once it reaches the beach, the pre-screening process is expected to expedite the delivery of humanitarian aid.
