23 Jun 2024 – At least five Palestinians were killed and seven others injured after an Israeli bombardment targeting the eastern main gate of the headquarters of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinians in the Near East (UNRWA) southwest of Gaza City as confirmed by the Zionist army and Palestinian media.

According to the Palestian News agency WAFA, “a warplane targeted the guard room at the main eastern gate of the UNRWA headquarters in Tal al-Hawa area, southwest of Gaza City, killing five people, some of them dismembered” and between the dead and wounded there is women and children.

The occupation forces also bombed a UN vocational college, this time in the northern side of the besieged strip, which have been now used to distribute food and aid while people, including several childeren and women standed in lines for receiving food.

Resulting of the attack eight people died and there is at least a dozen or 30 wounded, according to witnesses report.

Motasem A Dalloul, journalist who previously missed his pregnant wife and a son said on X that one of his sons was lining when the attack happened “was lightly wounded in his head, eye and thigh in Isreali bombing of the UNRWA Headquarters gate after getting food package.”

UNRWA haven’t make yet an official statement about the bombing, but Juliette Touma, UNRWA’s director of communications, says the agency is looking into the Israeli attack on an aid distribution facility in northern Gaza City before providing more details.

The Zionist occupation have killed 193 UNRWA workers since the start of the new Israeli attacks on Gaza strip and the Occupied West Bank. Since last October 7, the number of deaths as a result of the Israeli massacre in the Gaza Strip amounted to 37,551 and the injured 85,000 911.

On the other hand the Israeli Forces have said that the facilities were no longer being used by the agency’s teams although the Army did not want to give more details about the operation, such as the number of victims or injured in its official pronouncement.
