In the Gaza Strip, which has been under Israeli offensive since October 7, nearly 2 million of the 2.3 million Palestinians living there have been displaced, while those living in Gaza City and the northern Gaza Strip are suffering from severe shortages of food, water, medicine and fuel, leading to starvation that has claimed the lives of children.

However, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza, the Israeli army killed more than 127 Palestinians and wounded more than 760 others while they were waiting to receive humanitarian aid in Deir Belah in the northern and central Gaza Strip.

Between February 29 and March 3, AA correspondent compiled a list of attacks by the Israeli army targeting Palestinians waiting for food aid.

February 29th morning

In the morning hours of February 29, the Israeli army targeted Palestinians waiting for humanitarian aid at the Nablusi Junction on Rashid Street, which connects the Gaza Strip from north to south, south of Gaza City, by shelling and firing.

118 people were killed and 760 people were injured in the Israeli attacks targeting Palestinians waiting for humanitarian aid, especially flour.

The Palestinian government in Gaza emphasized that Israel’s attack on those waiting for humanitarian aid was “deliberate and planned” and said, “The occupation army knew that these people came to the region to receive humanitarian aid, but killed them in cold blood.”

In a statement to AA correspondent, Israeli security sources claimed that the Palestinians surrounding the aid trucks were “threateningly approaching” the Israeli soldiers who were ensuring the passage of the trucks, and admitted that the Israeli soldiers responded to the situation by opening fire.

Sources said the incident was being investigated, while a written statement from the Israeli army claimed that “Gaza residents surrounded the trucks and started looting the aid, and some Palestinians were injured in the scuffle and stampede.”

Israel’s far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir declared his support for the Israeli soldiers who opened fire on Palestinians waiting to receive humanitarian aid in the Gaza Strip, killing 118 and wounding hundreds, calling them “heroes”.

The incident, which has been recorded as the “Un massacre”, has caused harsh reactions at the regional and international level, as well as demands for an independent investigation and action by the UN Security Council.

On the morning of March 3rd

Nine people were killed and dozens of others were injured when the Israeli army targeted a humanitarian aid vehicle in the central part of the blockaded Gaza Strip, where it has been carrying out devastating attacks for months, forcibly starving and dehydrating people.

According to medical sources and eyewitnesses, Israel targeted a vehicle carrying humanitarian aid supplies in Deir al-Balah city in the central Gaza Strip.

According to initial estimates, 9 people were killed and many others were wounded in the attack.

Hamas, in a written statement, emphasized that the Israeli army’s targeting of aid convoys, including the aid truck in the city of Deir al-Balah, “is an indication of its persistent attitude of genocide and ethnic cleansing” and reacted harshly to the attacks.

The statement said that “deepening the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, deliberately starving and preventing people from receiving aid” is a fundamental part of Israel’s method of warfare against Gaza, adding that depriving the people of Gaza of aid contravenes all humanitarian laws and rules, as well as ICJ rulings demanding an end to the genocidal war.

March 3rd evening

Ashraf al-Qudra, the spokesperson of the Ministry of Health in Gaza, said in a written statement that Israeli forces committed a “horrible massacre” at al-Quwaiti Junction, south of Gaza City, killing and injuring many people.

Kudra stressed that Israeli forces are systematically waging a genocidal war against hundreds of thousands of hungry people in northern Gaza.

Since October 7, 30,410 Palestinians, including at least 13,230 children and 8,860 women, have been killed and 71,700 Palestinians have been injured in Israel’s attacks on the Gaza Strip.

Thousands are still reported dead under the rubble, while civilian infrastructure is also being destroyed, with hospitals and educational institutions targeted.
