Israeli Attack Kills Gazans Awaiting Humanitarian Aid Shipments

HeadlineJun 18, 2024

At least 17 Palestinians were killed in the Gaza Strip overnight after Israeli warplanes launched airstrikes on homes in the Nuseirat and Bureij refugee camps. This came after at least nine Palestinians were reported killed in another Israeli attack while waiting for aid trucks to arrive in the southern city of Rafah. This is Umm Mohammed Daloul, the aunt of one of the men killed in the strike.

Umm Mohammed Daloul: “They are merchants. They had nothing to do with anything. They were struck with missiles. There’s no safety. No safety. These are innocent people, honest people, who had nothing to do with anything. They killed the merchants. They killed people. They killed children. They killed women. They have mistreated us.”
