The United Nations has accused Israeli forces of opening fire on aid convoys as they were carrying aid to the war-torn Gaza Strip. Thomas White, director of the United Nations refugee agency UNRWA, made the complaint.
Al Jazeera, a Qatar-based media outlet, reported that Thomas White posted a post on social media X on Friday, alleging that aid convoys were set on fire in Gaza. He wrote that the relief convoy was passing through northern Gaza. At this time, Israeli soldiers set fire to a car. The car was badly damaged.
UNRWA head Thomas White also said that the convoy was returning along the route that the Israeli forces had determined. Even then, he did not understand why the fire was set. However, Thomas White also said that he and his team members are unharmed in this incident.
International aid workers should not be targeted in this way, writes Thomas White in the X Post.
Al Jazeera reported in another report that 210 people were killed in Gaza in the last 24 hours by Israeli attacks. At least 21 thousand 320 people have been killed in Gaza since October 7. 55 thousand 603 people were injured. On the other hand, Israel claimed that 1,200 people were killed in Israel by Hamas attacks. In addition, Hamas forces took 242 hostages.
