Israel’s military forces have in two weeks killed more than 400 desperate Palestinians who were waiting in lines to receive life-saving aid for their families in northern Gaza, according to the Gaza media office.

The media office said in a statement on Tuesday that people were waiting for aid trucks at the Kuwait Roundabout in Gaza City this morning when the regime’s forces attacked them.

At least eleven people were killed.

The latest attack on hungry people in Gaza City has resulted in the death of more than 400 people since the “flour massacre.”

The flour massacre happened in late February, when Israel forces opened fire on Palestinians who were trying to get aid from a food truck along the coastal road on the southwest edge of Gaza City.

Over 100 people were killed that day.

Head of Gaza media office Salameh Marouf said on Tuesday that Israel insists on “targeting those searching for a living for their children to satisfy their hunger, and is deepening the policy of starving our people.”

He criticized the international community “for lack of seriousness to end the suffering of our people through a ceasefire and the adequate flow of aid.”

“What encourages the occupation to continue this crime is the compliance of the international community.”

Northern Gaza has largely been cut off from the rest of the territory since the regime started hostilities in early October.The blockade has driven hundreds of thousands of people to the brink.

Shooting into large crowds of hungry people is the latest episode in Israel’s genocidal war that has so far killed more than 31,000 people in the besieged territory.
