The ship "Jennifer," which departed from Larnaca bound for Gaza with humanitarian aid, is set to return to Cyprus within the next two days, according to CNA sources. Accompanied by two support vessels, the exact cargo volume onboard remains unconfirmed.

Departing from Larnaca port on Saturday afternoon, the ships reached Gaza on Monday afternoon, carrying 332 tonnes of humanitarian aid and auxiliary equipment. However, there has been no confirmation on the exact contents of the returning cargo.

Meanwhile, the non-governmental organization "World Central Kitchen" announced its decision to suspend operations following the tragic death of seven of its members in Gaza. The fatalities occurred during an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) strike on vehicles belonging to the organization, prompting the suspension of its activities.
