Update on Progress of Temporary Dock Construction in Gaza Coastal Areas for Humanitarian Aid Boost Discussed by US Ambassador to Cyprus.

On Tuesday, US Ambassador to Cyprus, Julie Fisher, briefed President of the Republic of Cyprus, Nikos Christodoulides, on the stages and progress of implementing the decision to construct a temporary dock on the shores of Gaza to enhance humanitarian aid. This occurred during their meeting at the Presidential Palace.

According to President Christodoulides' post on platform "X," he met with US Ambassador Julie Fisher and Rear Admiral Patrick Frank in the afternoon. The meeting focused on the close collaboration between the two countries for the effective implementation of the Republic of Cyprus' initiative to provide humanitarian assistance to Gaza.

Additionally, it was stated that "during the meeting, the US side provided updates on the stages and progress of implementing the decision to construct a temporary dock on the shores of Gaza to increase humanitarian aid for those in need."

Earlier Than Initially Planned

In statements made last Friday on SPOR FM during the DIASPORAN NEWS program regarding the "Amalthea Plan," Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson, Theodoros Gotsis, mentioned that the temporary dock being prepared by the Americans on the shores of Gaza is expected to be ready by April.

Therefore, he emphasized that it will be constructed earlier than initially planned to facilitate the next phase of the "Amalthea Plan."

A recent report by the French news agency outlines the functioning of the Joint Logistics Over-the-Shore (JLOTS) system of the US Navy. This system is capable of constructing an advanced, temporary port on any shore where access to docking facilities is unavailable, within a timeframe ranging from 30 days to two months.
