The Pentagon mentioned Tuesday that it has suspended the supply of humanitarian support to Gaza through its floating pier after mishaps by which 4 U.S. navy vessels have been beached, one U.S. service member was critically injured, and sections of the construction have been ripped free in unhealthy climate.

The injury would require the U.S. navy, with Israeli help, to disassemble items of the pier connected to the Gazan shore, rebuild them within the close by Israeli port of Ashdod, then transport them again to the Gazan shore and reconnect them, mentioned Sabrina Singh, a Pentagon spokeswoman. That course of will take at the least every week, quickly eliminating the pier as an choice to ship humanitarian help to civilians in Gaza support as Israel continues its months-long navy marketing campaign towards the militant group Hamas.
