After reading that the Gaza pier was damaged by weather, I read a bit more to try to understand how much aid was getting in before the war and recently. 50 trucks or 1000 tons is so opaque to non-experts like most of us. The pier was still a good idea and can work when repaired. Sort of like increased bandwidth and redundancy in a network, except instead of bytes it’s getting food where it can save lives even when some channels are disrupted.
