Emgage Calls for Immediate Ceasefire and Humanitarian Aid Following Tragic Loss of Lives in Northern Gaza Strip

Washington, D.C.- Israeli forces reportedly fired on Palestinians waiting for food aid in the northern Gaza Strip, resulting in at least 104 deaths and 760 injuries near Al-Nabulsi roundabout, southwest of Gaza City. The incident, confirmed by a spokesperson from Gaza’s Ministry of Health, might see an increase in the death toll as many of the injured are in critical or serious condition.

“Emgage is deeply concerned about the recent events in the northern Gaza Strip, where over 100 individuals were tragically killed and more than 700 were injured while waiting for food aid. This tragic incident underscores the urgent need for immediate humanitarian assistance and a ceasefire to protect civilians in Gaza. The loss of life and the severe impact on civilians highlight the importance of respecting international law, including the rules of armed conflict and human rights principles.

We call on all parties to commit to an immediate and permanent ceasefire and to ensure that humanitarian aid can be safely delivered to those in desperate need. The international community must come together to support efforts to provide relief and to work towards a peaceful resolution that respects the dignity and rights of all individuals affected by this crisis,” stated Wa’el Alzayat, CEO of Emgage.
