A Tragic Incident Occurs as Relief Supplies are Airdropped in Gaza

12 people drown off the coast of Gaza following aid drop

Relief supplies were airdropped off the coast of the Gaza Strip on Monday, according to Hamas. Twelve Palestinians drowned in the sea while trying to reach the packages that had fallen into the water off a beach in the northern part of the coastal area, as reported by the Hamas-controlled government’s media office.

The northern Gaza Strip has been experiencing severe suffering among its civilian population during the ongoing conflict that has been ongoing for more than five months. Aid deliveries by land are limited due to Israel’s closure of border crossings in the north of Gaza Strip. Additionally, fighting and chaotic conditions within the coastal area make it dangerous for trucks to travel.

Aid organizations have highlighted that an airlift cannot fully replace transportation of relief goods by land, despite efforts from countries such as Germany, Jordan, USA and others who have been dropping relief supplies from military aircraft for over a month. The war was sparked by a brutal massacre carried out by terrorists from Hamas and other extremist Palestinian organizations on October 7th near Israel and Gaza border.
