GAZA CITY.β€” The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said yesterday that one of its convoys with supplies for a hospital in the Gaza Strip was the victim of a shooting.

The international organization failed to determine its origin.

"The ICRC convoy of five trucks and two vehicles was transporting vital medical supplies, in particular for the Palestinian Red Crescent Society's Al Quds Hospital, when it was hit by gunfire," the ICRC said in a statement.

Two trucks were damaged and one driver suffered minor injuries, he added.

After the incident was reported, the convoy changed route towards Al Shifa hospital, where the medical supplies were delivered.

Humanitarian workers cannot carry out their work in conditions like these in the Palestinian enclave,” denounced the director of the ICRC sub-delegation in the Gaza Strip, William Schomburg.

As of press time, the ICRC had not provided further details about the possible perpetrator of the event.

Israeli authorities had previously accused the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) of attacking civilians moving towards the southern Gaza Strip.
