Thursday morning, the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) targeted a large gathering of Palestinian civilians lining up for aid trucks at Al-Rasheed Street in north Gaza, in a massacre that killed and injured hundreds of Palestinians.

The IOF claimed that there was a “violent gathering” when humanitarian aid was being delivered which endangered “Israeli” troops.

A military source within the IOF cited by “The Times of Israel” said that their troops opened fire at the crowd of Palestinian civilians, and that the incident is currently under investigation.

Hamas stated that the heinous massacre committed by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) in Gaza, is “unprecedented in the history of war crimes.”

In a statement Thursday, it added that this horrific massacre is part of a long series of massacres committed by “Israel” against the Palestinian people, showing disregard for the consequences of its terrorist actions due to the cover and complicity of the Biden administration in its aggression.
