The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) said establishing the maritime humanitarian corridor to Gaza is to intense the delivery of the humanitarian aid to Gaza, not for replacing the currently used methods of delivering the aid to Gaza through land borders.

The main use of this maritime corridor is helping the international organizations to deliver the aid to Gaza independently, and non-biased.

The US Defence Department is establishing a temporary pier in the Mediterranean See nearby the shores of Gaza for delivery of humanitarian aid to the strip by the humanitarian partners.

Today, at 7:40 am in Gaza time, the US Defence Department humanitarian teams that work to delivering the aid to Palestinians established the floating bier nearby the shores of Gaza.

US troops didn't enter Gaza, in addition, the aid trucks will move to the port through the upcoming days, the UN will receive the aid and distribute them.

In the same context, more humanitarian aid is on its way from the US and other countries to Cyprus. The aid will be checked by Israeli troops and moving them towards the maritime corridor.

The USAID expressed that it expect more aid to be delivered through the maritime corridor in a short time from its operation.

Moreover, the talks about operating the network of distributing aid into Gaza with the UN to guarantee a safe and sustainable delivery of aid to Gaza.

The USAID asserted that this mission is complex and requiring a successive coordination with all parties who are continuing their contribution to these talks and coordination.

It highlighted that the agency still committed to work on having more procedures for humanitarian workers and staff more guarantees while conducting their missions in the strip, adding working to deliver the needed aid for the civilians who need help through land, air, and sea.
