At least 29 killed in Israeli attacks as they waited for aid, Gaza health ministry says

World

At least 11 people have been killed and a further 100 injured as they waited for aid in Gaza, according to the Hamas-run health ministry which has blamed Israeli forces.

The incident reportedly happened at Kuwaiti roundabout in the besieged Palestinian territory.

The ministry said at least 11 bodies and 100 wounded people were taken to Al Shifa hospital.

This comes two weeks after the Gaza health ministry said at least 112 people were killed during another aid delivery.

Israel’s account of that incident was “not clear”, as several “different versions of events” were given, Sky Middle East correspondent Alistair Bunkall said at the time.

Civilians were gathered to try and get food and medicine from aid truck deliveries. A video obtained by Al Jazeera showed a crowd appearing to flee and duck amid audible gunfire.

Following the incident, medical teams said they were unable to cope with the volume and severity of the injuries, with dozens of wounded taken to the Al Shifa hospital, just under 4km from the incident site.
