UN organisation says Israeli shooting hit humanitarian convoy

  • UNRWA vehicle hit despite coordination
  • Israeli army criticized for firing
  • Gaza in dire need

According to the report, the armoured vehicle bearing UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) branding was struck despite prior coordination with Israel to ensure its protection.

The United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees criticized the Israeli army on Thursday for purportedly firing upon an aid convoy in Gaza.

It was reported that a vehicle carrying UNRWA branding, obviously marked with armor, was struck despite prior coordination with Israel to ensure its protection.

After delivering supplies to Rimal in northern Gaza City, two vans returned to the south.

Juliette Touma, director of communications for UNRWA, stated that the team was engaged in gunfire on Salah al Deen, the primary thoroughfare that connects the northern and southern regions of Gaza, just south of Wadi Gaza.

She stated that the assistance workers “could see that the Israeli army was firing at the vehicles.”

Director of UNRWA affairs in Gaza, Thomas White, stated on X: “Aid workers ought never to be targets.”

Israeli prime minister’s top adviser Mark Regev claims Hamas controls the UNRWA workers’ union.

“Thomas White is receiving only the information that Hamas wishes for him to hear,” he explained.

“There are also clear evidence that Hamas needs international help to stop Israel’s military operation. They [Hamas] perceive this to be the case.”

“We are deconstructing Hamas’s military infrastructure and removing its most senior commanders. The organization is in dire need of a ceasefire.”

“They want to fake a humanitarian crisis to push Israel to stop fighting to protect themselves.”

They cannot be permitted to accomplish that

When asked if an inquiry would be conducted into UNRWA’s allegations, he responded, “An investigation is inevitable. It is our practice to acknowledge and rectify our errors.

In another region, Kate Phillips-Barrasso, vice president of the Mercy Corps, has warned that Gaza is in dire need of aid, as a quarter of its 2.3 million inhabitants, or 500,000 individuals, are threatened with “catastrophic hunger and starvation.”

As a result of Hamas’s October 7 attack on Israel, which claimed 1,200 lives, the IDF’s air and ground offensive has displaced approximately 85 percent of the population.

The Hamas-controlled Palestinian health ministry reports over 21,000 Palestinian deaths since the conflict began.

Even since Israel reopened the Kerem Shalom border crossing, the quantity of life-saving supplies permitted to enter Gaza is negligible, according to Ms. Phillips-Barrasso, and falls far short of providing for the Palestinians’ fundamental and critical requirements.

Ms. Touma of UNRWA further stated that the alleged assault on UNRWA vehicles on Thursday occurred notwithstanding the organization’s prior “deconfliction” with the Israeli army, which aimed to secure the safety of aid vehicles and personnel while they traveled.

“We expect them to be protected,” she stated. It ought not to occur. At all times, UN personnel and UN vehicles must be protected.

Fortunately, absolutely nothing was damaged.

She stated that one damaged vehicle returned to the UNRWA base in the southern portion of Gaza City.
