Israel using the American floating dock on the Gaza coast to carry out military missions

The US Central Command (Centcom) announced on Monday that it had “temporarily” stopped delivering aid to Gaza via the floating dock, which did not amount to 1 percent of the Strip’s food needs.

The government media office in the Gaza Strip accused Israel of using the American floating dock on the Gaza coast to “prepare and launch to carry out security and military missions.”


The director of the office, Ismail Al-Thawabta, said during a press conference on Monday that among these tasks was “committing the crime of the Nuseirat camp massacre (carried out by Israel on June 8, during which 274 Palestinians were killed).”


He explained, “This pier had a major military and security role in this horrific massacre,” and he believed that the pier “did not provide 1 percent of the food needs of the residents of the Gaza Strip.”


On June 10, the Pentagon denied that Israel used the floating dock during its operation to liberate 4 of its prisoners in the Nuseirat camp in the central Gaza Strip, a claim rejected by the authorities in the Gaza Strip.
