Gaza-based militants launched mortar rounds on Wednesday at Israeli forces making preparations for the U.S.-led effort to establish a new maritime aid route for Gaza, according to three U.S. officials.

No American equipment was damaged as the U.S.-led project — which will establish a pier a few miles offshore as well as a causeway anchored to the beach to expand access to humanitarian aid — is not yet complete, said one of the officials. 

But the attack came as U.S. military personnel were scheduled to soon begin construction of the pier, which the U.S. hopes will drastically expand the amount of aid that can reach the enclave. The Pentagon has said the project will be operational by the end of the month or early May, and U.S. military ships are standing by to start the work.

A “small number of mortars” caused “minimal damage” in Gaza in the vicinity of the “marshalling yard area for humanitarian assistance that will soon be delivered by sea,” said one of the officials, a member of the U.S. military.

The attack occurred before U.S. personnel began constructing the floating pier, the official said, noting that “there will be no U.S. forces on the ground in Gaza.”

The IDF confirmed in a statement that militants from various groups in the Gaza Strip attacked “the engineering work area in the northern Gaza Strip.”

“This is further proof of the continuous attempts made by the terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip to systematically harm humanitarian efforts, endangering the lives of UN workers while Israel remains committed to enable and facilitate humanitarian aid to Gazan civilians,” according to the IDF statement.

Did you think Hamas was going to let the US go around them did you?

Unless one is as fucking blind as a bat as the demonstrators are these days one can see how obvious it is that Hamas will sabotage positive efforts to bring humanitarian aid to the Gazans because the suffering of their people must be accentuated to turn the world against Israel.  As I've said before, their lies about numbers and children and bombing hospitals and mass graves are designed to bleed the hearts of the world's ignorant naive gullible people -  and they are succeeding in their efforts.  The terrorists may lose the battle, but they have won the war.

They succeed here because of low-information people who don't have a clue what terrorists are.

If there really were a God in heaven, I would pray that He would turn back the clock to the morning of October 7 and transport all the demonstrators and protestors who are supporting Hamas and disparaging Israel to the Nova Music Festival in Israel.  I think THAT would give them the education they need.  This is NOT a death wish, I would not want any of them to die or be taken hostage, but just to see and experience what happened to the audience and see their heroes in action. .

Pentagon spokesperson Maj. Gen. Pat Ryder said this week that U.S. military ships carrying equipment to build the pier are in the Mediterranean “standing by” to begin construction.

The Biden administration is ramping up efforts to expand humanitarian aid to Gaza, a senior administration official told reporters.

Further proof that the Gaza morons that comprise Hamas hate the idea of a project they do not have complete control over. Whatever aid come in, they want it for themselves rather than the non combatant populace in Gaza whom they care very little about.

Exactly!

The fact is, Hamas doesn't care how much their actions cause Gazans to suffer.

In fact, the more they suffer the better it is for Hamas' propaganda purposes.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around DF Biden's comment about how Israel must ensure aid gets to Gaza.

The man is off his rocker!

I'm sure at some point Biden was in deep with the Amish while growing up and can get it fixed.

He’s just puppeting what he’s told to say.    The question is, who’s controlling his strings.

I hate to say it, but if Hamas terrorists continue with rocket and mortar attacks, a US military person or persons is bound to be injured, or worse.
