US halts sea shipments of aid to Gaza after pier damaged by storm – NBC

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. military has suspended aid deliveries to the Gaza Strip by sea after bad weather damaged the makeshift pier it had built on the enclave’s shore, NBC News reported on Tuesday, citing anonymous officials.

The U.S. military is expected to make the announcement later Tuesday, NBC’s report said, citing a United Nations official, a U.S. official and an Israeli official.
