Hamas: We reject Israel’s sham investigation into Al-Nabulsi Roundabout massacre

Saturday 9-March-2024


The Hamas Movement has affirmed its rejection of the Israeli results of its probe into what has become known as the “flour massacre”, in which hundreds of Gazan people were killed and wounded.

Hamas said in a statement on Friday, “We reject the results of the sham and misleading investigation carried out by the criminal Zionist occupation army, on Al-Nabulsi Roundabout massacre last week, which claimed the lives of about 120 Palestinians who were waiting to receive aid.”

This came in response to Israeli allegations, in the form of an investigation conducted by the Israeli army, that Israeli forces opened fire on citizens “due to the presence of suspicious elements posing a ‘threat’ by approaching the army forces!”.

The Movement affirmed that “this sham deceptive inquiry goes beyond the compelling facts on the Israeli intentional killing of Palestinians by shooting them directly on the upper parts of the body.”

Hamas noted that the massacre “received widespread international condemnation, which prompted the Nazi Zionist occupation to try to exonerate its terrorist soldiers of the horrific crime they committed with no justification other than their thirst to kill more of our people.”

On February 29, Israeli forces opened fire on hundreds of Palestinians after they had gathered south of Gaza City waiting to receive humanitarian aid on Al-Rashid Street, leaving 120 martyrs and 760 wounded, according to the Ministry of Health in Gaza.
