UNICEF Vehicle Waiting to Enter Gaza Comes Under Fire
A vehicle of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) waiting to enter northern Gaza came under fire, according to a statement on the X social media platform.

"Yesterday, a UNICEF vehicle waiting to enter the north of Gaza was hit by live ammunition. The incident has been raised with the relevant Israeli authorities. Sadly, humanitarians continue to face risks in delivering life saving aid," UNICEF Middle East and North Africa said, TASS reported.

Israel waged its brutal war on besieged Gaza on October 7 after Hamas carried out an unprecedented operation against the occupying entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

Israel has imposed a complete siege on the densely populated territory, cutting off fuel, electricity, food, and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.
