Israel-Gaza War, Humanitarian Aid

Dozens killed and wounded while looting aid trucks in Gaza

A Gazan mob descended on aid trucks in the northern Gaza Strip, and many were trampled on or run over. In addition, the IDF fired in the direction of part of the mob moving towards them.

Looting and tragedy. (Screenshot from IDF footage.)

Hunger is worsening in Gaza, along with increasingly violent incidents of looting aid trucks. Yesterday, Israel allowed the introduction of food into the northern Strip, where some 300,000 Gazans are still residing, having refused to evacuate. Some 30 trucks entered the northern area from the south.

Most of the aid has reached southern Gaza, but there are serious food shortages in Gaza City. With food running short, a mob of thousands swarmed the trucks and a violent pile-up occurred, including people being run over, trampled, and injured while being crushed.

In addition, some of the mob moved towards the IDF force securing the trucks, endangering their safety. The IDF responded with gunfire. Armed Hamas terrorists also fired towards the trucks and took part in the looting.

There appear to be dead from the gunfire, though the official Palestinian numbers of some 100 dead and 700 wounded sounds greatly exaggerated.

The IDF stated that “during the introduction of the humanitarian aid trucks in the morning hours to the northern Gaza Strip, a violent mob of Gazan residents developed around the trucks, who looted the arriving equipment. During this mobbing, dozens of Gazans were injured from the crush and trampling. The incident is being investigated.”

Opinion

Israelis excited by successful operation, but is this more of the same old conception we've become accustomed to? 

It is sad to see how much our military leaders have influenced our way of thinking and expectations for our country.
