EU chief ‘deeply disturbed’ by images of Gaza crowd crush, calls for investigation

EU chief Ursula von der Leyen Friday declares that she is “deeply disturbed by images from Gaza,” where dozens of Palestinians were killed as they swarmed a convoy of aid trucks yesterday morning.

“Every effort must be made to investigate what happened and ensure transparency,” the European Commission president writes on X. The EU’s top diplomat Josep Borrell earlier denounced the incident as a “carnage.”

Hamas blamed the IDF for the deaths, but the military has said most of the casualties were caused by a stampede and people being run over by the supply vehicles. Gunmen also opened fire in the area as they looted the supplies.
