IDF opens fire on civilians waiting for humanitarian aid in Gaza Strip killing 10

According to WAFA news agency, another 15 people were wounded in the shelling attack and taken to a hospital

DUBAI, February 26. /TASS/. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has opened fire on civilians waiting in line for humanitarian aid in the Gaza Strip killing ten people, Palestine’s WAFA news agency said.

According to it, several thousand civilians who were waiting for trucks with humanitarian aid were attacked with drones and artillery to the west of Gaza City. Another 15 people were wounded in the shelling attack and taken to a hospital.

Tensions flared up again in the Middle East on October 7, 2023, when militants from the Gaza-based Palestinian radical group Hamas staged a surprise incursion into Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip. Hamas described its attack as a response to the aggressive actions of Israeli authorities against the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City. In response, Israel has declared a state of war readiness; announced a total blockade of the Gaza Strip, home to 2.3 million Palestinians; and began delivering air strikes on the enclave and certain parts of Lebanon and Syria. Clashes are underway in the West Bank as well.
