World Central Kitchen mulls re-launching Cyprus aid route

The humanitarian organization World Central Kitchen will resume its operations in the Gaza Strip, four weeks after seven of its staff members were killed in an Israeli airstrike.

The non-governmental organization, which has been working out of Larnaca, explained it was studying plans to resume deliveries through the sea corridor from Cyprus.

Meanwhile, a ship carrying food from Cyprus for the Palestinians in Gaza arrived in Ashdod on Sunday. Cypriot authorities had halted the operation of the Amalthea sea corridor delivering aid in the wake of the tragic deaths of the seven aid workers in the Israeli attack.

The delivery of aid to Gaza is of critical urgency as the humanitarian crisis in the enclave has been worsening since Israel launched a large-scale offensive in Gaza to retaliate against a deadly Hamas attack on Israel on Oct. 7 last year.
