Israel welcomes US plan for ‘temporary dock’ for Gaza aid, Israeli official says

Israel welcomes a United States plan to build a “temporary dock” on the Gaza coast to deliver humanitarian aid by sea and will coordinate the development of the project with the US, an Israeli official said on Thursday.

Israel “fully supports” the creation of such a facility, the official says on condition of anonymity, after US officials said US President Joe Biden would announce in his State of the Union speech that the US military will construct a port to receive food, medicine and other supplies for civilians in the war-torn Palestinian enclave.
