British troops may deliver aid to Gaza Strip – media

A possible role for British forces would see them drive trucks from landing boats to a temporary seawall and deliver aid to a safe distribution point on the coast.

The British military could be tasked with delivering humanitarian aid to Gaza through a sea pier currently being built by the US military, the BBC reports.

The US said no US troops would enter the Gaza Strip and an unnamed “third party” would drive trucks along the floating causeway to the beach.

The UK is understood to be considering outsourcing its British troops when the aid corridor opens next month.

No decision has been made and the proposal has not yet been submitted to Prime Minister Richa Sunak, British government sources said.

A possible role for British forces would see them drive trucks from landing boats to a temporary seawall and deliver aid to a safe distribution point on the coast.

While enormous efforts will be made to protect allied forces both ashore and on the ground, British forces will potentially face an increased risk of attack from Hamas and other armed groups.

US defense officials have confirmed that a US warship has begun work on the construction of a large floating pier.

Aid will be brought to the pier from Cyprus on large ships, then transferred to trucks and smaller landing boats. Officials said the floating dam would be “several hundred meters long” and would be firmly anchored to the sand.

They expressed hope that the new maritime corridor, which they call Operation Joint Logistics Over-the-Shore (JLOTS), will support the delivery of up to 150 trucks per day.

The UK is already providing logistical support for the construction of the pier, including a Royal Navy ship with space for hundreds of US soldiers and sailors working on the project.

In addition, British troops are stationed at US Central Command in Florida and Cyprus, where aid will be screened before being sent to Gaza.

The UK Hydrographic Office also shared a survey of the Gaza coast with the US to help build the pier.

We remind you that the Israel Defense Forces have stopped active ground offensives and are withdrawing from the southern Gaza Strip. Only one army brigade remains on the ground, tasked with securing the corridor linking southern Israel to the Gaza Strip.

The White House said the Israeli military withdrawal from the southern Gaza Strip was for personnel re-equipment and recreational purposes and did not necessarily indicate any new operations.
