The temporary US pier aimed at boosting aid shipments to Gaza has been reattached to the coast and deliveries of humanitarian assistance have resumed, Pentagon spokesman said on Thursday.

The pier, which cost the US at least $230 million, was meant to deliver humanitarian aid into Gaza via the United Nations’s World Food Program. It has faced a number of setbacks, most recently when it was temporarily removed last Friday due to poor sea conditions.
