Second Ship Carrying Humanitarian Aid to Palestinians Readied on Cyprus

NICOSIA – A second vessel filled with food for Palestinians trapped in the Gaza Strip during Israel’s hunt for Hamas terrorists was being loaded on Cyprus as the island has become the jumping-off point to get humanitarian aid to them.

As many as 25 percent of the population of 2.4 million people in Gaza are at risk of starving because of an Israeli blockade and Israel said it will have to inspect all cargo on ships heading there.

World Central Kitchen (WCK) said it was loading a ship at Larnaca port with 300 tons of food aid – including legumes, canned tuna, vegetables, rice and flour, said the news agency Reuters on March 14, no details on when it would sail.


Cyprus is screening aid cargos on the island in a process including Israel to eliminate security checks at offloading destinations, officials said. A ship towing a barge carrying almost 200 tons of food aid for Gaza left Cyprus two days earlier.


NICOSIA - The World Bank’s International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) ruled against Greek investors who lost $600 million in bonds and deposits in Cypriot banks in 2013, the funds seized on government orders to prevent their collapse.
