Desperately needed aid is being loaded onto a ship in Cyprus bound for Gaza, but how it will actually reach the people inside the territory is not clear.

200 tonnes of food, water and medicines could set sail in the coming hours – in a joint operation between the US, the EU and the United Arab Emirates.

But there are no functioning ports in Gaza and the aid is not likely to reach the people who need it for weeks.
