Israelis Strike UN Truck Carrying Humanitarian Aid

The President of the EU General Affairs and External Relations Council and Czech Foreign Minister expressed his regret on hearing of Israeli fire striking a UN truck with humanitarian aid and killing its driver.

‘After the striking of the UN school, this is another terrible episode, which moreover occurred during the three-hour ceasefire declared by Israel. This is yet another proof that all wars necessarily mean tragic deaths of innocent people. That is why we reiterate our appeal: a ceasefire must not be further delayed’, said Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg.
