The World Food Program (WFP), a division of the United Nations (UN), announced on Sunday that it would halt aid deliveries from the Biden regime’s floating pier in Gaza citing safety concerns on the ground. The U.S. military had constructed the pier in May, but it was rendered non-operational after being susceptible to bad weather and choppy seas. However, it was fixed and anchored to Gaza’s shores on Friday. The goal was to deliver 90 truckloads of aid per day through the pier, but only two days after the pier’s operation, it has been suspended. Cindy McCain, WFP’s director, said safety concerns have mounted concerning their staff after the “incident” that occurred and that two of their warehouses were rocketed on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Israel conducted a successful military operation to rescue four hostages being held by Hamas in the Nuseirat camp of central Gaza. A firefight ensued, which led to the death of at least 274 Palestinians, according to local health officials. Because of this, there have been concerns over the safety of Central Command (CENTCOM) forces operating the pier due to environmental and conflict risks in Gaza. Three U.S. troops were injured in May’s operations, with one sustaining critical injuries. Four Army vessels supported the pier but were unmoored by a storm, resulting in two ships landing on Gaza’s shore and two floating north to Israel, beached.

Several humanitarian groups are coordinating with U.S. officials in Gaza to continue the movement of aid in a safe and effective manner. The WFP will temporarily hold off on their aid deliveries until after the completion of a security review. Leaders are working to ensure that operations will resume safely, without further harm.
