The Security Council is concerned about the bloody attack in Gaza

The Security Council is concerned about the bloody attack in Gaza

The United Nations noted that Israel had begun an investigation after reports from the United Nations Coordination Office (OCHA) stated that the incident involved the forces of the occupying authority.

More than 100 people were killed on Thursday and several hundred others were injured, including people with gunshot wounds, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs noted, in an incident in which Israeli forces participated in a large gathering around an aid convoy. It was stated in the text.

Council members stressed the need to take all necessary measures to protect residents and civilian infrastructure.

At the same time, they called on all parties to refrain from depriving civilians in the Gaza Strip of basic services and humanitarian assistance that are indispensable for their survival, in accordance with international humanitarian law.

The Council urged Israel to keep border crossings open for humanitarian aid, facilitate the opening of additional crossings to meet widespread needs, and support the rapid and safe delivery of relief materials throughout the Strip.

They also warned of grave concern after humanitarian agencies estimated this week that 2.2 million people inside the enclave would face alarming levels of acute food insecurity.

Council members called on the parties to allow and facilitate the immediate, rapid, safe, sustainable and unhindered delivery of humanitarian aid throughout Gaza in accordance with the decisions approved by the entity.

The aforementioned attack was reported on Thursday on Al-Rashid Street in Gaza City when the army attacked thousands of people who were in desperate need of food.

According to Wafa Agency, the occupation forces and their tanks fired machine guns at thousands of citizens in the northern Gaza Strip, who were waiting for trucks loaded with humanitarian aid to arrive.

The Israeli army said in a statement that the shooting caused the death of only 10 people, and it was estimated that the rest were caused by crowd stampede.

However, this narrative was rejected by the Palestinians, who condemned the new massacre.

The Palestinian presidency said that the crime falls within the framework of the war of genocide committed by the authorities of this country against our people, and that it bears full responsibility for the incident.
