None of the aid that has been unloaded from the temporary pier the US constructed off the coast of Gaza  has been delivered to the broader Palestinian population, as the US works with the UN and Israel to identify safe delivery routes inside the enclave, the Pentagon said on Tuesday.

Several desperate Gazans intercepted trucks delivering aid from the pier over the weekend, leading the UN to suspend the delivery operations until the logistical challenges are resolved.

The US is working with Israel and the United Nations to establish “alternative routes” for the safe delivery of the 569 tons of aid transported to Gaza since last week, Pentagon spokesperson Maj. Gen. Pat Ryder said on Tuesday.

Of course it wasn't. It would be against israel's plan to starve every non-jew to death.

[-] FlyingSquid@lemmy.world 66 points 3 weeks ago

Every Palestinian.

There are plenty of non-Jews in Israel. Some are even in Netanyahu's party. Netanyahu is fine with them if they vote for him or another party in the coalition, which they are known to do.

Netanyahu specifically wants to take Palestinian land at the expense of Palestinians. It's not because they're Muslims, it's because they have the land he wants and he wants it at all cost.

Netanyahu wants you to think this is about Jews. It isn't about Jews. Don't fall for that.

Nah, they're going to turn on them next. That's what fascists do. They Purge.

[-] Fedizen@lemmy.world 9 points 3 weeks ago

well to be fair pretty sure black jews are on their "to purge" list

[-] bamboo@lemm.ee 17 points 3 weeks ago

In the past they’ve forced black Ethiopian Jews to take birth control without their knowledge or consent. It’s obvious that Israel has preferences as to which Jews are the majority.

And Yemeni Jews.

I find that reading is conducive to understanding.

You should try it.

[-] Viking_Hippie@lemmy.world 32 points 3 weeks ago

as the US works with the UN and Israel to identify safe delivery routes

That's your problem right there: Israel and the vigilantes they tip off are the ones making every route unsafe for the UN and all other aid workers and the US government are threatening anyone who points it out.

And no one was surprised.

[-] eran_morad@lemmy.world 25 points 3 weeks ago

Yeah bruh, maybe it was a fucking stupid idea to do this pier shit and instead we should have cut off all aid to Israel.

[-] DancingBear@midwest.social 21 points 3 weeks ago

Biden would rather lose the election than do that.

[-] damnthefilibuster@lemmy.world 20 points 3 weeks ago

So wait, the people who need the aid, came to the trucks and asked for the aid / demanded the aid, so the UN checks notes suspended the aid?!!!?!

[-] cyborganism@lemmy.ca 12 points 3 weeks ago

Yeah because the IOF bombed them.

[-] damnthefilibuster@lemmy.world 1 points 3 weeks ago

I get I and F. What’s O?

[-] cyborganism@lemmy.ca 3 points 3 weeks ago

Instead of Israeli Defence Force

We call them Israeli Offense Force

Because at this point it's not defence anymore. And it never has been. They've attacked everyone in Palestine ever since the colony of Israel was created.

[-] PyroNeurosis 2 points 3 weeks ago

Thanks for clearing that up. I had been reading it as Israeli Occupational Forces.

[-] cyborganism@lemmy.ca 3 points 3 weeks ago

Ah well that could be it as well. Actually I think that's the correct one.

Fucking idiots spent time and money building something that does not need to exist while Israel steps over evey line Biden gave them. The US is basically just delaying so Isreal can continue with their final solution. Theres no way in hell any sane statesman could continue to give Israel the benefit of the doubt. After example after example, the choice to continue supporting this becomes the intentional and continuation of everything the Israeli state does.

[-] Neato@ttrpg.network 11 points 3 weeks ago

Wow, I wonder who could be stopping Palestinians in Gaza from getting the aid...

[-] jordanlund@lemmy.world 11 points 3 weeks ago

The only surprise here is that the pier hasn't already been "accidentally" targeted by Israel.

[-] AstridWipenaugh@lemmy.world 3 points 2 weeks ago

There are Hamas tunnels under the pier!

[-] unreliable@discuss.tchncs.de 4 points 3 weeks ago

So it is unloading, and will take a while until the starving people get feed stop to steal.Thum they can deliver it to whatever target US/Israel was planning.

This is the best summary I could come up with:


None of the aid that has been unloaded from the temporary pier the US constructed off the coast of Gaza has been delivered to the broader Palestinian population, as the US works with the UN and Israel to identify safe delivery routes inside the enclave, the Pentagon said on Tuesday.

Several desperate Gazans intercepted trucks delivering aid from the pier over the weekend, leading the UN to suspend the delivery operations until the logistical challenges are resolved.

The US is working with Israel and the United Nations to establish “alternative routes” for the safe delivery of the 569 tons of aid transported to Gaza since last week, Pentagon spokesperson Maj. Gen. Pat Ryder said on Tuesday.

A US official told CNN that the Defense Department and UN are still working to determine how much aid can be held at he staging area inside Gaza at any given time.

The Pentagon said in April that the goal was to deliver roughly 500 tons of aid — amounting to 90 truckloads — per day to the starving population of Gaza, with the intent of working up to 150 trucks daily.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is continuing to have conversations with his Israeli counterpart regarding the effort to get aid through land crossings, including through Rafah, he said.
