A video circulating on social media shows armed people, presumably Hamas members, looting humanitarian aid trucks crossing into the Gaza Strip from Rafah.

The video was filmed Monday by Gazan civilians as they threw stones at the looters wearing civilian fatigues, who shot back in response.

The civilians can be heard insulting the looters, and shouting “This is all being filmed!”

A Gazan dissident living in Europe with over 100,000 followers on Facebook shares the video, with a caption lambasting Hamas: “This is how you treat the patient and steadfast people you have starved to death? By shooting at them?”

Some Gazan social media users claim that the men belong to local Rafah gangs who steal from aid trucks and resell their booty on the black market.

A similar video emerged in recent weeks of Hamas terrorists in military uniforms stealing from aid convoys and beating up civilians as they try to access the food.
