12 people drown off the coast of Gaza following aid drop

Desperate in the Deep: Drowning in the Gaza War’s Endless Aid Crisis

On Monday afternoon, twelve Palestinians drowned in the sea while attempting to retrieve aid supplies that had fallen into the water off a beach in the northern part of the Gaza Strip. The incident was reported by the media office of the Hamas-controlled government. According to eyewitnesses, some of the victims were unable to swim and others got caught in the ropes used to hold the packages together.

The Northern Gaza Strip has been facing severe suffering among its civilian population during the ongoing Gaza war, which has been going on for more than five months. Aid deliveries by land are limited due to Israel’s closure of border crossings in the north of Gaza Strip and due to fighting and chaotic conditions within the coastal area. This makes it dangerous for trucks to travel.

The USA, Jordan, and other countries have been dropping relief supplies from military aircraft for over a month now. Germany joined this initiative in mid-March as well. However, aid organizations point out that an airlift alone cannot fully replace transportation of relief goods by land. The war was sparked by a brutal massacre carried out by terrorists from Hamas and other extremist Palestinian organizations on October 7th near the border between Israel and Gaza Strip.
