The United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees reported on Friday that an aid convoy in the Gaza Strip came under fire from the Israeli military, resulting in no casualties. “Israeli soldiers opened fire at an aid convoy returning from northern Gaza along a route designated by the Israeli army. Our international convoy leader and his team were unharmed, but one vehicle sustained damage,” wrote Tom White, UNRWA’s director in Gaza, on X.
UNRWA stated that the incident occurred on Thursday afternoon.
In response to inquiries, the Israeli military stated that it is investigating the reports concerning the incident.
Earlier on Friday, the UN humanitarian chief, Martin Griffiths, posted on X describing what he termed “an impossible situation for the people of Gaza and for those trying to help them.”
Griffiths mentioned that aid convoys had faced gunfire, refraining from providing further details. “You think getting aid into Gaza is easy? Think again,” he asserted.
