The flour massacre, America and other countries condemn Israel's targeting of civilians waiting for aid

Several countries, including the United States, Belgium, Italy, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and Iran, in addition to the United Nations, condemned the Israeli occupation army’s targeting of Palestinians waiting for aid in Gaza, which resulted in the death of more than 100 and the wounding of hundreds of others.

On Thursday, the White House considered the Israeli forces' shooting of Palestinians who were waiting for humanitarian aid south of Gaza City a "serious incident" after more than 110 people were killed and more than 750 others were injured.

A spokesman for the US National Security Council said in a statement that the White House was “looking into the reports,” while acknowledging the “loss of innocent lives.”

The spokesman described the Israeli forces' shooting of Palestinians who were waiting for humanitarian aid in the Nabulsi Roundabout area as a "serious incident."

He added, "We mourn the loss of innocent lives and acknowledge the poor humanitarian situation in Gaza, as innocent Palestinians try to feed their families."

Shock and dismay

In turn, Belgian Deputy Prime Minister Petra de Sutter said that the Israeli occupation forces targeting Palestinians waiting for humanitarian aid south of Gaza City is a violation of international humanitarian law.

She stressed that "Israel clearly violated international humanitarian law with its attack," stressing that the shooting "completely contradicts" the provisional measures taken by the International Court of Justice towards Tel Aviv.

For her part, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni said in a post on X: “I was horrified and felt deeply concerned about the tragic news of what happened today in Gaza (the flour massacre), and the killing of more civilians in Gaza requires intensified efforts to stop the fire and free the hostages.”


Saudi Arabia strongly condemns

In this context, the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the Israeli targeting of citizens waiting for relief aid in the northern Gaza Strip.

The ministry said, in a statement, that it "expresses the Kingdom's strong condemnation and denunciation of the targeting of defenseless civilians in the northern Gaza Strip, which resulted in the death of dozens and the injury of hundreds, as a result of the occupation forces' bombing of humanitarian aid queues in Gaza."

It affirmed "the Kingdom's categorical rejection of violations of international humanitarian law by any party and under any pretext."

Saudi Arabia stressed "the necessity of reaching an immediate ceasefire to prevent further innocent civilian casualties."

"Barbaric act"

For his part, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani described the Israeli attack as a "barbaric act."

The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman stressed that "the wound of Gaza will not be erased from the memory of the free people."

The United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Martin Griffiths, also expressed "dread" following the martyrdom of Palestinians waiting for help, saying that "life is being drained from Gaza at a terrifying speed."

On Thursday, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres denounced the events that led to the death of more than 100 Palestinians by bullets from the occupation army during an aid delivery operation in northern Gaza.

His spokesman Stephane Dujarric said, "We do not know exactly what happened. But whether these people were killed by Israeli fire, or were crushed by crowds, or were run over by trucks, these are acts of violence that are somehow linked to this conflict," adding that the incident took place in "horrific circumstances."

He explained that United Nations crews were not present during the distribution of this aid.

Dujarric noted that "desperate civilians in Gaza need urgent assistance, including those besieged in the north, as the United Nations has been unable to provide aid for more than a week," reiterating Antonio Guterres' call for an immediate ceasefire.


"Flour massacre"

In turn, the head of the Hamas political bureau, Ismail Haniyeh, discussed with the Chinese ambassador to Qatar, Cao Xiaolin, the developments of the situation in the Gaza Strip, in addition to the “flour massacre” that left dozens of Palestinian martyrs and wounded south of Gaza City following an Israeli bombing.

This came during Haniyeh’s reception of the Chinese ambassador, according to a statement by the movement, hours after the Israeli bombing.

Earlier Thursday, an Israeli military source acknowledged that the army opened fire on a crowd of Palestinians who were waiting for humanitarian aid to arrive on Al-Rashid Street, south of Gaza City, which led to the death and injury of a large number of them.

The spokesman for the Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip, Ashraf Al-Qudra, announced that “the death toll of those who were waiting for humanitarian aid south of Gaza City had risen to 112 martyrs and 760 injured.”

The Colombian president announced, on Thursday, the suspension of all arms purchases from Israel, after its forces opened fire earlier today on Palestinians in northern Gaza while they were waiting for aid, which led to the death of about 112 of them , according to the latest toll.

Colombian President Gustavo Petro wrote on the X platform a blog post in which he said, “For food, more than 100 Palestinians were killed by Netanyahu.” “This is called genocide, and it reminds us of the Holocaust, even if the world powers do not want to acknowledge it.”

“The world must stop Netanyahu,” he added. Colombia suspends all arms purchases from Israel.”


Colombia, along with Venezuela, Bolivia and Cuba, directed sharp criticism at Israel, accusing it of committing genocide in its war, which it has been waging on the Gaza Strip since last October.
