BREAKING: US suspends humanitarian aid deliveries into Gaza after sea damaged Biden’s $320 million pier

The US has officially suspended humanitarian aid deliveries into Gaza after the sea damaged Joe Biden’s pier that cost American taxpayers $320 million.

Here’s more from the AP:

A U.S. built temporary pier that had been used to deliver additional humanitarian aid into Gaza was damaged by rough seas and has temporarily suspended operations, three U.S. officials told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

The Joint Logistics Over The Shore, or JLOTS, pier only began operations last week and had provided an additional way to get critically needed food to Gaza.

The setback is the latest for the pier, which has already had three U.S. service member injuries and had four if its vessels beached due to heavy sea states.

The pier was fully functional as late as Saturday when heavy sea states unmoored four of the Army boats that were being used to ferry pallets of aid from commercial vessels to the pier, which was anchored into the beach and provided a long causeway to then drive that aid onto the shore.

Two of the vessels were beached on Gaza and two others on the coast of Israel near Ashkelon.

I’m sure they’ll eventually get the pier back together, but doesn’t this just feel like $320 million down the drain? What a waste of money, especially when there were already land routes for aid to come into Gaza.
