CENTCOM Moves Gaza Pier and Halts Aid Deliveries


The US military said it would temporarily relocate its portable pier used to assist aid shipments into Gaza, noting it would be moved to Ashdod, Israel, during the present bout of rough weather. The decision comes after the United Nations paused its work with the pier due to security concerns linked to a recent Israeli commando raid.

US Central Command announced the move in a press release on Friday, stating that relocating the pier would "prevent structural damage caused by the heightened sea state" and ensure future aid deliveries. It added that the pier would be "rapidly re-anchored" along the Gaza coast as soon as possible, but offered no timeline for when that might occur.
