An aid ship prepares to leave Cyprus for Gaza. The ship is scheduled to leave for Gaza on Saturday (March 9). The ship is carrying relief goods to aid Gazans on the brink of famine. British news agency Reuters reported this news.

The aid ship is in the port of Larnaca, Cyprus, authorities said. Aided by the World Central Kitchen (WCK) charity and the United Arab Emirates, various relief items including rice, flour and protein have been loaded onto the ship. However, it has not been specified when it will leave. The European Commission said the construction of a maritime aid corridor between Cyprus and Gaza could start this week. WCK will take up the project with UAE funding. This project will facilitate the entry of relief aid into Gaza. Although relief is being delivered by air.

Aid agencies have warned of the situation in Gaza, saying the five-month Israeli occupation of Gaza has led to famine. Nearly all of Gaza’s 2.3 million residents have been displaced. Not only that, relief supplies are being blocked through the border crossing.

The charity WCK has partnered Spain’s Proactiva Open Arms and together they will deliver food to Gazans.

WCK and its partners agreed to continue providing relief assistance. They said in a statement, another 500 tons of relief aid is ready.

A WCK spokesperson said, “Our intention is to take relief to Gaza.” WCK and partners are building a port there. It has nothing to do with the US port construction project.

Meanwhile, the US plans to build temporary ports off the coast of Gaza to send more relief aid by sea. The country also said that initially relief aid will be sent from Cyprus to Gaza. But the Israeli army will allow to enter Gaza after verifying the relief.
