SEAToday.com, Gaza - The UN World Food Programme (WFP) resumed humanitarian aid distribution in Gaza on Wednesday (5/22) with the arrival of the first shipment via sea route.

 

The small amount of food aid was unloaded from the US-built pier on Friday (5/17), said WFP spokesman Steve Taravella. The US Agency for International Development (USAID) reported that 21 aid trucks had reached humanitarian organizations in Gaza.

 

The UN is coordinating aid distribution at the floating dock but remains adamant that aid deliveries by land are “viable, effective, and efficient". It had said that at least 500 trucks per day are needed to enter Gaza.

 

The UN previously forced to halt aid transport due to a lack of supplies and insecurity. Israel’s closure of vital crossing points into Gaza has escalated the humanitarian crisis in the enclave.
