29 February, 2024

Israeli forces have killed more than 100 Palestinian civilians and wounded more than 700 as they queued for food aid early this morning near Gaza City.

According to Gaza Strip's health ministry, at least 104 Palestinians have been confirmed killed and 760 injured in the attack by Israeli forces, making it one of the deadliest massacres in since the latter's genocidal war on the coastal enclave began in October.

Thousands of people had been waiting for food and aid supplies at around 4:30am local time at Al-Rashid Street, near Gaza City, when Israeli forces opened fire on the crowd, causing mass panic.

The dead and wounded were rushed to the barely-functioning Al-Shifa Hospital and Kamal Adwan Hospital, with many transported on the trucks that had been carrying aid.

At least 30,035 Palestinians have been killed and 70,457 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7, according to the Gaza health ministry.
