According to the Gaza Ministry of Health, 104 people were killed by an Israeli attack while waiting for humanitarian aid

The Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip’s health ministry said dozens of people were killed in an Israeli attack on Thursday morning as they waited to receive food aid in Gaza city. According to the ministry, at least 104 people were killed, and more than 700 were injured. The Israeli army he said which is analyzing reports about the incident, but a spokesperson for it told the news agency Reuters that he was not aware of any bombings in that area. A subsequent statement from the army said that “dozens” of people were injured in the crowd around the trucks that were delivering the aid.

A witness told the French news agency AFP that the attack occurred on the al Rashid coastal road. According to testimony, Israeli troops fired at civilians who were reaching a humanitarian aid truck because they got too close to Israeli tanks parked there. Jadallah al Shafei, director of nursing at Gaza’s al Shifa hospital, told ad Al Jazeera that “most of the dead and wounded have gunshot wounds and shrapnel in the head and upper body. They were directly hit by artillery, missile and gunfire.”

The injured were mainly taken to Gaza’s Shifa and Kamal Adwan hospitals, but a lack of fuel for ambulances slowed their timely transport. Once they arrived at the hospital, the shortage of personnel, medical supplies, space and fuel for the generators further complicated the rescue.
