Possibility of sending humanitarian aid to Gaza through Cyprus

A government source in Cyprus has confirmed to the state broadcaster CyBC that there is interest from the United States and other countries in providing humanitarian aid to Gaza through Cyprus.

The source was commenting on yesterday’s statement by the representative of the American National Security Council, John Kirby, who said that the United States is considering the possibility of using Cyprus to create a maritime humanitarian corridor, to provide American aid to the Gaza Strip.

Reuters, in response from Washington, reported that US officials visited Cyprus to consider using the island as a base for a naval aid operation.

Citing a government source in the United States, the report added that Washington was considering using warships or merchant ships for the operation, which is seen as complicated by securing a landing site for aid.
