German foreign minister says IDF must investigate yesterday’s ‘mass panic, shooting’ in Gaza

German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock asks Israel to conduct a thorough investigation into the deaths of dozens of Palestinians during an aid delivery in Gaza yesterday.

“The Israeli army must fully investigate how the mass panic and shooting could have happened,” Baerbock writes on X, also calling for a “humanitarian ceasefire.”

Hamas has blamed the Israel Defense Forces for a reported 104 deaths in the incident, whereas the military said that fewer than 10 of the casualties were a result of Israeli fire.

Israel asserts that soldiers had fired warning shots and attempted to ease the crush of people looting a convoy of aid trucks that entered northern Gaza early Thursday morning, but has acknowledged that troops did fire on several Gazans who endangered soldiers.
