Israeli police investigating attack on Gaza aid convoy

Chief Correspondent

Israeli police say they are investigating after a group of right wing settlers ransacked a convoy of aid trucks bound for Gaza.

Several people were arrested after the road was blocked, trucks set on fire and food thrown onto the ground.

Israeli tanks are reported to be pushing further into the southern city of Rafah, where the UN says almost 480,000 Palestinians have fled in the last week, warning they face “constant exhaustion, hunger and fear”.
