Humanitarian help recommenced flowing over a floating pier deployed by the U.S. navy to the Gaza shoreline on Saturday, the U.S. navy stated, following a days-long suspension of operations prompted by the construction breaking apart in heavy seas.

U.S. Central Command, which oversees American navy operations within the area, stated in an announcement that deliveries started about 10:30 a.m. in Gaza, with about 1.1 million kilos arriving. Deliveries had occurred over the pier from May 16 to May 25, till items of the pier broke free.
