The $230 million temporary “trident” pier anchored to the coast of Gaza, which has been beset by problems and required several repairs, is again on hold, according to U.S. Central Command.

“Today, operations at the pier will pause for scheduled maintenance activities,” CENTCOM stated on Monday.

More than three million pounds of aid crossed the pier, which was re-anchored on June 19, over the weekend, and the 1.58 million pounds of aid delivered via the pier on Sunday was “the largest single-day delivery of aid to date,” CENTCOM stated.

It added that some 13.6 million pounds of aid have been delivered via the pier since May 17. “This humanitarian operation is made possible by our continued partnership with the United Nations and many international and regional partners,” it stated.
