Israeli airstrike on UNRWA aid center in Gaza kills at least eight, The Palestinian refugee agency UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) in the Gaza Strip was the principal headquarters of the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) in Gaza when an Israeli air attack near an aid centre killed at least eight people.

In an air strike carried out by Israel on Sunday night in Gaza City, within the enclave, a Palestinian organization based in Gaza City, was struck by several missiles, injuring a number of people. This facility serves as a distribution point for the little humanitarian aid that has been able to reach Gaza so far.

In the months prior to the incident, hundreds of Gazans who had been forced to flee their homes because of the Israeli military’s ground invasion were hiding inside the facility.

Palestinian woman, who was present at the scene of the attack, stated that she witnessed several dead bodies and two of her children were injured in the attack.

Innocent children have done something wrong, but what are they doing wrong? As they run from death towards death, they are on the verge of death. In her words, “the Israelis slaughter young men and women every day.”.

“Some people were coming to receive coupons, while others were displaced from their homes and they were taking shelter here after being displaced from their homes. Some people were filling up their water tanks, others were receiving coupons, and all of a sudden we heard something falling. One of the witnesses, Mohammed Tafesh, told the crowd that they ran away, and those carrying water let it spill over as they ran.

Reuters photographer saw that a low-rise building had been completely demolished, and this morning bodies wrapped in blankets were being placed on the side of the road awaiting removal from the scene.

It was stated in the Israeli military’s statement relating to the attack that the building was being used by Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad as a “shield for terrorist actions” and to conduct terrorist activities.

In the days leading up to the attack, Israel had carried out a series of strikes throughout the city a day earlier, including at several camps in the north, including the Shati and Tufah camps, where refugees from the north were supposed to seek refuge from Israeli forces. It is estimated that 42 Palestinians were killed as a result of these attacks.

There have been 101 Palestinians killed and 169 injured in the past 24 hours, according to the Gaza Ministry of Health, which was released on Saturday.

During this deadly evening, the death toll from the June 8 massacre that took place in the Nuseirat refugee camp at least reached 274 Palestinians, while hundreds more were injured, in the course of an operation that led to the rescue of four Israeli prisoners.

After a devastating military offensive which lasted for over eight months, the Israeli military has so far killed 37,598 Palestinians and injured 86,032 others, including children and women, according to the Gaza Ministry of Health.

As a result of Israeli attacks on the aid distribution system and UN facilities in Gaza, international condemnation and calls for a ceasefire to be achieved immediately and an immediate surge of humanitarian assistance to be distributed to Gaza are being ignored.

Since the start of the war, UNRWA reports that the Israeli military has attacked 188 UN facilities across 188 locations, causing damage to 445 buildings. It is estimated that at least 500 Palestinians who were sheltering within the premises have been killed, and 1,547 have been injured.

It has also been reported that the Israeli military has killed 193 UN personnel since October 7 in a record setting attack.

There is an oversupply of humanitarian aid outside the Gaza Strip as a result of the Israeli military’s complex bureaucratic procedures, coupled with the security challenges posed by operating within Gaza’s enclave, prevent the war-torn Palestinians from getting relief.
