12 people are reported to have drowned off the coast of Gaza following the discontinuation of aid

On Monday afternoon, twelve Palestinians tragically drowned in the sea while trying to reach aid supplies that had fallen into the water off a beach in the northern part of the Gaza Strip. The Hamas-controlled government’s media office reported this incident on Tuesday, although it could not be independently verified. According to eyewitnesses, some of the individuals who drowned were unable to swim while others became entangled in the ropes that tied the packages together.

The northern Gaza Strip has been experiencing significant suffering among the civilian population due to the ongoing Gaza war that has lasted for more than five months. Aid deliveries are scarce as Israel keeps the border crossings in the north of the Gaza Strip closed, and the dangerous conditions within the coastal area make truck travel difficult. Despite this, countries such as Germany have joined forces with other nations including Jordan and Israel to conduct relief supply drops from military aircraft for over a month. However, aid organizations stress that an airlift of this nature cannot replace transportation by land.

The war was sparked by a horrific massacre carried out by terrorists from Hamas and other extremist Palestinian organizations on October 7th in Israel near the border with the Gaza Strip. The incident serves as a reminder of how vital it is for all parties involved to prioritize peace and humanitarian aid over violence and conflict.
