Under the U.S. military plan, aid will be loaded onto commercial ships in Cyprus and sailed to the floating platform now under construction off Gaza.

Pallets will be loaded onto trucks, which will be loaded onto smaller ships that travel to a floating two-lane causeway. The 550-metre causeway will lead to shore.

U.S. officials say the pier will be operational by early May, but there will be no US boots on the ground in Gaza.

The U.S. says that once the system is operational, up to 150 trucks of aid could be delivered a day with two million meals, enough to feed almost all of the territory’s 2.3 million population.
