Twelve Palestinians Drowned in Attempt to Reach Aid Supplies from Gaza

12 people drown off the coast of Gaza following aid drop

On Monday afternoon, twelve Palestinians 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, according to Hamas. The packages were dropped from planes by international organizations attempting to deliver aid to the region, which has been experiencing severe suffering among its civilian population due to ongoing fighting for more than five months.

Israel has closed border crossings in the north of the Gaza Strip, limiting aid deliveries by land. The fighting and chaotic conditions within the coastal area make it dangerous for trucks to travel. Despite these challenges, aid organizations continue to work tirelessly to ensure that relief goods reach those in need.

The USA, Jordan, and other countries have been dropping relief supplies from military aircraft for over a month. Germany also joined the initiative in mid-March. However, aid organizations highlight that an airlift of this kind cannot fully replace the transportation of relief goods by land. The war was sparked by a brutal massacre carried out by terrorists from Hamas and other extremist Palestinian organizations on October 7th near the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip.
