UN suspects people killed in Gaza: “Hit by bullets”

Many of the people injured on the outskirts of Gaza City on Thursday while waiting for humanitarian aid were hit by bullets likely fired by Israeli soldiers, said Stephane Dujarric, a United Nations spokesman. The finding was based on a visit by UN experts to Al-Shifa Hospital, the main hospital in the Gaza Strip where around 200 of the victims are being treated.

At least 112 people were killed and another 760 injured near an Israeli army checkpoint on Thursday after a truck convoy carrying food and humanitarian aid arrived in the area. Several sources accused the Israeli military of opening fire on the crowd near the checkpoint. According to Dujarric, UN experts saw “a large number of gunshot wounds” in Al-Shifa.
