Israel Kills More than 104, Injures More than a Thousand as they Wait for Flour Amidst Mass Starvation

The Israeli regime has killed more than 104 Palestinians who were waiting for food aid in Gaza City this morning, with the total number of killed by the Occupation Entity now soaring above 30,000 since Oct. 7, 2023.

The Israeli troops opened fire on hundreds of starving people waiting for flour and food aid in southwest Gaza city, wounding more than a thousand in the wake of a massive hunger crisis caused by Israeli blockade of food and medical supplies as well as fuel. 

People had crowded at al-Rashid Street, where aid trucks carrying flour were reported to be arriving. Harrowing footage of dead bodies piled on a donkey cart and Palestinians being hauled onto trucks have emerged across social media, as ambulances were unable to reach the area due to the complete destruction of roads by the Israeli regime’s relentless bombing across Gaza. 

The last few standing hospitals are also on the brink of collapse, following a huge shortage of medicine, fuel, and even blood. 

The Israeli regime then tried to blame the crowd, claiming that dozens were hurt as a result following a stampede when the trucks arrived. The Israeli troops even feigned fear, citing hundreds of troops approached their troops, which threatened them. However, no  such evidence was presented. 

“I have been waiting since yesterday. At about 4:30 this morning, trucks started to come through. Once we approached the aid trucks, the Israeli tanks and warplanes started firing at us, as if it was a trap.

“To the Arab states I say, if you want to have us killed, why are you sending relief aid? If this continues, we do not want any aid delivered at all. Every convoy coming means another massacre,” a Palestinian witness said. 

The UN has warned against “looming famine,” while stating that the situation is now turning into a “man-made disaster.”
