Foreign Ministry says its proud to work with US, Great Britain and partners to send aid to Gaza

The Cyprus Foreign Affair Ministry has said it is proud to work with the US and Great Britain as well as key partners in scaling up the flow of humanitarian aid to Gaza.

In a message on X, the Ministry said it is "proud to work with the US and Great Britain and key partners in scaling up (the) flow of humanitarian aid, in line with UN2720" via the first shipment to JLOTS pier off Gaza.

It added that this is an apt example of shared service facilitated by the Cyprus Maritime Corridor aiming to provide additional aid.

Meanwhile, the US Central Command, in a message on X, said that "today at approximately 7:40 a.m. (Gaza time) United States Central Command personnel supporting the humanitarian mission to deliver additional humanitarian aid to Palestinian civilians in need anchored a temporary pier to the beach in Gaza".

It noted that as part of this effort, no US troops entered Gaza.

Trucks carrying humanitarian assistance are expected to begin moving ashore in the coming days while the United Nations will receive the aid and coordinate its distribution into Gaza.
