Following the Al-Rasheed Street Massacre on Thursday, the Israeli Occupation Minister of National Security Itamar Ben-Gvir emphasized the importance of supporting Israeli Occupation army soldiers in their aggression against Gaza.

"We must give complete support to our heroic fighters operating in Gaza, who acted excellently against a Gazan mob that tried to harm them,” Ben-Gvir said on his “X” account.

“Today it was proven that the transfer of humanitarian aid to Gaza is not only madness while our abductees are being held in the Strip under substandard conditions, but also endangers the IDF soldiers too.”

“This is another clear reason why we must stop transferring this aid, which is actually aid to harm IDF soldiers and oxygen to Hamas," he added.

Earlier Thursday morning, the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) launched an assault on a large gathering of Palestinian civilians who queued to receive supplies from aid trucks on Al-Rasheed Street in northern Gaza, resulting in a massacre in which hundreds of casualties were recorded.

The IOF claimed that there was a “violent gathering” when humanitarian aid was being delivered which endangered “Israeli” troops.

A military source within the IOF cited by “The Times of Israel” said that their troops opened fire at the crowd of Palestinian civilians, and that the incident is currently under investigation.

Hamas stated that the “heinous massacre” committed by the IOF in Gaza, is “unprecedented in the history of war crimes.”

In a statement Thursday, it added that this horrific massacre is part of a long series of massacres committed by “Israel” against the Palestinian people, showing disregard for the consequences of its terrorist actions due to the cover and complicity of the Biden administration in its aggression.
