The White House upholds Israel’s right to look into the slaughter at the relief convoy into Gaza

The White House, which defends the nation’s right to look into possible wrongdoing, stated on Friday that it thinks Israel ought to examine into the deaths of at least 112 people in Gaza City after Israeli troops opened fire while residents were waiting for food assistance. During Friday’s news briefing, National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby told reporters, “We’ve asked the government of Israel to investigate and it’s our assessment that they’re taking this seriously and they are looking into what occurred, so as to avoid tragedies like this from happening again.”


Kirby cited earlier instances of Israel looking into accidents and claimed that they have been “very honest and upfront” about their errors. Kirby continued, saying that they haven’t given Israel a deadline for finishing their inquiry. Meanwhile, the secretary-general of the United Nations has demanded an impartial inquiry. What is known: Witnesses report that on Thursday morning, a convoy of at least eighteen food trucks, supplied by nations in the region like Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates, arrived in Gaza City.


An Israeli tank fired warning rounds to disperse the crowd as disorder broke out and people were being trampled, according to an IDF spokesman on Thursday. Eyewitnesses, including local journalist Khader Al Za’anoun, who was present and stated that the panic started only after Israeli forces opened fire, directly refuted that assertion. Though most of the injuries were unintentionally caused by relief vehicles escaping the shooting, some Palestinians were killed by gunfire, according to Al Za’anoun.
