Gaza sea aid route a 'model': Cyprus president Nikos Christodoulides

In an exclusive interview, the president of Cyprus told Euronews a maritime corridor from the Mediterranean island to Gaza could become a wider blueprint for delivering assistance.

Nicos Christodoulides said sending aid over sea could not only help Gaza's reconstruction following Israel's devastating war with Hamas, but be applied to many crises in the region.

Almost 200 tonnes of food was recently shipped from Cyprus to Gaza, marking the first time in 17 years Israel's naval blockade of the enclave was lifted.
