The US-built temporary pier off the coast of Gaza will resume operations this afternoon, the Kan public broadcaster reports, after it was damaged by bad weather last month.

The pier had only been operational for two weeks before it was towed back to Israel’s Ashdod Port for repairs.

In that time, the US said the pier had been used to deliver over 1,000 metric tons of humanitarian aid to civilians in the war-torn Palestinian enclave.
