Israeli gunfire caused some 10 casualties out of the hundreds of people allegedly hurt and killed during this morning’s crowd crush in the northern Gaza Strip, according to an initial IDF probe.

Following a stampede as Palestinians tried to rush aid trucks, which reportedly caused dozens of casualties, a small group of Palestinians began to move toward IDF troops stationed in the area.

The soldiers fired warning shots in the air and shot at the legs of those getting closer to the forces.

The probe finds that troops hit some 10 Palestinians in the area.

Hamas claimed 104 dead and 760 wounded, blaming Israeli fire.
