According to UNRWA, the incident took place on Thursday afternoon.

The Israeli military responded to requests for comment saying that it was looking into reports about the incident.

Earlier on Friday the UN humanitarian chief, Martin Griffiths, wrote a post on X describing what he called “an impossible situation for the people of Gaza, and for those trying to help them”.

Griffiths said that aid convoys had been shot at, without elaborating.

“You think getting aid into Gaza is easy? Think again,” he said.
